    Johannesburg’s OR Tambo Airport has had a bad reputation for pilfered baggage for years and SAA chief executive Siza Mzimela referred to it at a meeting between some airlines and the parliamentary committee on tourism in August when she said pilfering there was “out of control”.

And although I am careful not to put anything likely to disappear into my own checked in luggage I have several times found the locks broken – even when I have not locked my case – and the contents disturbed, obviously by someone searching through it in a hurry.

    I used plastic ties and it worked all two times at JNB.
    Our tour director had a provision and made us use them.
