tsadude,

Just so we are clear:

The TSA does not want us to lock our luggage and if we do and the luggage requires a secondary screening, the lock will be cut off. BUT, if anything is stolen, we have to duke it out with the airlines.

Surely, you must personally think this is idiotic.

Idiotic? Sure. But I'll bet the airlines absolutely love it! Finally, they've got somewhere else to point the finger!

I fully expect that luggage loss claims are going to quickly devolve into a "he said, she said" p***ing match between the airlines and airport TSA representatives, with the real net loser being the poor schmo who got his valuables stolen. Fun, fun!

Being an elite and thus able to preboard with my just-barely-allowable rollaboard has never been more important.
