Just how secure is your luggage?

Your rating: None Average: 5 (3 votes)

Qantas Airlines were embarrased by one of their baggage handlers on Wednesday morning. Passenger David Cox complained after he saw a baggage handler driven across the Sydney airport tarmac Wednesday wearing the camel suit that had been packed into the baggage he had checked in only minutes earlier. The Herald Sun reports that the handler was later fired.

Since in the post 9/11 world it is required that bags must be unlocked so they can be easily inspected, this clearly illustrates concerns that baggage is now far more open to tampering than before these 'security measures'.
