Have you ever wondered what happened to your luggage after giving it to a ticket agent? No? Well too bad, you are about to find out. Recently, Delta Air Lines took a bag that was going from Atlanta to New York and added six cameras to it.

I don’t know about you, but looks like my bag has a lot of fun every time it flies.

Would have been funny if a SWA ramper jumped in and flagged them for excessive baggage fees.

Just sayin’

Would have been even funnier if some maroon in TSA stole the cameras, I mean, confiscated them in the name of national security. Yeah, that’s what I meant. 🙂

I am guessing by the fact that it was the only bag on the luggage cart out on the tarmac, everyone involved knew what this page was about :). Unless Delta really has a poor operation of driving one bag at a time around the airport.

That was my first thought too. I tend to use soft luggage in the form of duffel bags and avoid packing anything breakable specifically because I know how people get when they’re in a hurry.

Yeah, they must have known about it…they handled it gently and didn’t throw it off the plane.

The worst is when they slam the golf bags on the ground upside-down.

Whoa! Who turned off those cameras (electronic devices) before the flight took off?!? No one! What kind of super dangerous stunt is Delta trying to pull here?

Some call it stunt, I call it fake action. Personal experience: DL lost my bag for 6 days on my way SFO-LAX-PHX, and left me with bills for basic replacement clothing.

How come they don’t show the part where the bag was lost for three days??

Hey David, love your site! I used to be a ramper at Delta here in Seattle back in the 90’s! It was a fun job!
