Avoid Lost Luggage
U.S. Transportation Department figures report that the odds are Approx.1 in 200 that your bag on any given flight will be lost or misrouted.  That means, that there will be at least one passenger on almost every flight that will arrive with out his bags. In less developed countries, the odds get increase.

The most common cause of lost or mis-routed luggage is gate agent error. Take the time to check the baggage tags before the agent sends them done the luggage shoot. You need to confirm the three-letter code of your destination airport, For example LAX, JFK, LHR, etc., and ensure that that is indeed the three letter code that the gate agent has included on the baggage tag before your bag vanishes down the conveyor belt. Do not keep extra tags, frequent traveler tags or stickers on your luggage.
