Airline Selling Your Luggage
Last week I was at the nail shop and watching “Exclusive”. It is a short report about things people might want to know. At first I did not know what was going on. They showed people dressing up and showing things they bought for practically nothing. Than further on it explained what the brief segment was about. It was about luggage being auction off and so many people attend buying butt load of luggage from 45E and up. People buy hoping to find jewelries, laptop, and brand names items to sell on eBay or wear themselves. I was watching with my mouth drop open especially after a female bought 3 big luggage and one had on a number lock. She asked for help for it to be open and of course did not get it. Pretty much in simple terms they told her she must find a way to open it. In which she eventually did. It was a men dress shoes, laptop, and a few files.
I was getting so piss watching it. Why don’t the airline open the luggage before auctioning them off. In many people suitcases their are some type of contact information. A few times my luggage was misplace and they tried to pay hubby and me off with $50 airport vouchers each to buy clothes for over night. Hell that can’t even buy me one jeans. How is that going to buy us both an outfit and underwear from that? We always had to give them hell and call them night and day until they find where our baggage was misplace. Therefore, seeing this tv show made me think. Does the airport as a quota? Is this is why so many baggage are missing? People please start if you don’t do this already packing your important things with some overnight clothes in your carry on. Label your suitcases with more than one tag. Because it is so easy for tags to be rip off or do what some people do. They buy personal tags for their suitcase with their name and contact info. When all fail and they lose you suitcase…be like a blood hound and stay on their arse until you get back your belonging.
