Tales of stolen luggage tags

Jump to last reply

When we arrived on Kauai two weeks ago, I was sorry to see that one of the luggage tags had been stolen off my one of my suitcases. I had two nice stainless steel tags given to me when I bought my Acura. That was some years ago. I have seen airline employes peer at the tags covetously, but they fastened cleverly and no one had taken one until now. The other tag got badly bent on the flight, so I expect I don't need to worry about it getting stolen.

This incident made me recall the luggage tags I had once, very briefly. I was given a set of Boeing 777 luggage tags right after the plane came out. I was also given a couple of extras to gift to attentive flight attendants on my international flight on a new 777. The flight attendants were delighted with their gifts. When I arrived in Frankfort, I found that one of the tags had been stolen from my suitcase. When I returned home, the other tag was stolen from the other bag. So those tags lasted just one trip.

I was pleased to return home to my Million Miler kit and a new luggage tag... I wonder if it is a coveted item among airline employees.

Anyone else have stories of luggage tags too good to remain on their baggage?
