Tip #84 - I Found My Bag, But....

When you retrieve your luggage from the baggage carousel, be sure to inspect it immediately. A couple of reasons are this; first of all ensure it's your bag! This author actually arrived home from a long trip with another person's bag! Additionally, you want to check for damage and see if it has been opened and if anything has been taken. If anything has happened to your bag, now is the time to tell the airline. You can then clearly document it and lodge your complaint. Waiting until you get to your destination could result in the airline taking responsibility or claim you are at fault.
