Lost Luggage

Spend any time at an airport baggage claim and it won’t be long before you spot a solitary suitcase going round and round on an otherwise empty baggage carousel. Ever wondered what happens to that suitcase if the airline is unable to reunite it with its owner? Chances are it ultimately ends up at the Unclaimed Baggage Center, a one-of-a-kind retailer that purchases lost and unclaimed bags from the airlines, then re-sells the bags and their contents at a store in Scottsboro, Alabama, The Unclaimed Baggage Center.

That is so horrid. Someone else profiting from your loss. You'd think this would be illegal but if the bags aren't properly tagged or missing tags altogether, I guess they just can't be found! All the luggage problems over the last few years is exactly why I've starting using Global Bag Tag on everything that's going to be out of my sight during a trip.
