Default Airlines + Luggage

I just had to share this:

> When we went to the check-in counter for the most recent flight trip, I
> told the young lady: "Well, we want to go to Paris. The big suitcase
> goes to Mallorca, the smaller one to Rome, the backpack goes to
> Barcelona." - "But Sir," says the girl, "I'm sorry but we can't do that,
> that's impossible." - "Well," I said, "your airline managed to make it
> happen last time ..."

Although I think it would be more correct if the heading was Airlines minus luggage, not plus.

Yes, it makes a mockery of the "security" rule that "no unaccompanied luggage will be allowed on planes".

Unaccompanied? Why, whatever do you mean? Surely it was accompanied by the luggage intended for Manitoba, Dubuque, Fiji and points east, north, west and south.

Point taken. The subject line was intended more as an intro to the notion:

Airline + Luggage --> Mess

No, the luggage intended for Manitoba went to Kansas. The luggage intend for Fiji wound up in Norway. We still haven't found the luggage intended for Dubuque.
