    When considering the worst things that can happen to luggage, people might think of theft or loss, but for dozens of British Airways travelers, something unthinkable happened. Their luggage was covered in sewage when a pipe burst at the airport.

    About 100 suitcases were covered in sewage when a pipe in the sewage system of Heathrow Airport's Terminal 5 exploded in the baggage holdings area on Monday. Passengers had to wait days to receive their luggage as the airport sent the suitcases to be cleaned.

    I wouldn't even want my suitcase after that, cleaned or not... I'm filing a claim and you send me a check and keep the bag that took a sewage shower. :)
