Years ago, prior to leaving the baggage claim area, there was a person who checked your luggage receipt against the luggage tag and they took your receipt and then you would leave the baggage claim area. Today, there really is no such thing. So, what is to stop someone from taking their luggage, putting it in their car or somewhere else and then filing a claim with the airline for lost luggage. I am wondering if this is ever done, and is it done by many. Some might think this is the way to get back a the airlines for the baggage fees airlines they now charge. Your thoughts?
