stolen from checked bag
Mar 22, 2007


I had a GPS unit stolen from my checked bag on a Southwest Airlines flight yesterday. The bag had a tag on it indicating that it had been opened by the TSA.

Southwest's position is that they don't cover ANY electronic device in checked luggage, which would presumably include a DSLR. They also told me that it is routine for the TSA to steal things from luggage they open.

They recomend that the only thing in your checked bag should be your clothes! Every thing else should be in your carry on.

So, if your check your camera bag you might be in trouble.
