    A BAG containing $1 million in cash has been lost by airline staff en route from New Zealand to Hong Kong.

    The Chinese language website Oriental Daily reported that the bag was one of 13 carrying a total of $10 million in New Zealand bills.

    English news site Shanghaiist said the bag was flown from New Zealand on a Cathay Pacific aircraft and arrived at Hong Kong International Airport on Friday night.

    The cash was being transported to the Bank of China in bags labelled G4S International Logistics in a luggage box through a cargo transfer service provided by a Cathay subsidiary, Hong Kong Airport Services.

    How many times do we have to say: never put valuables in your checked baggage!

    If it was in a box with other bags, I doubt if the Airline Staff had access. I would look at either customs or the Logistics company. This just about has to be an inside job and the Airline probably has no liability. And if they do, they just have to find another G4S Logistics Box.
