Carry on Luggage

Jump to last reply

Hi! I am new to this Forum and I hope I can get some advice from experienced travelers.

My questions: Do you always get a tag for that piece of carry-on bag (cabin-size) that has to be checked in at the gate because you are flying short distance on a small plane? Have you sometimes been told by the crew that tags are not necessary because you will get your bag where you left it immediately on arrival? What should you do if that bag does not appear at the end of the journey and you don't have a tag and you are told 'no tag no bag'? Has anyone ever had that bad experience?

Airlines have a long list of exclusions for valuables in checked-in luggage and so prudent passengers put their valuables in their carry-on bags. What happens if valuables are pilfered from this bag that you are 'forced' to check in at the gate? What are our rights as passengers?

Thank you.
