STOLEN snapshots - TSA says cheese?
Frequently Asked Questions:
as i was unpacking my bag after reaching my final destination, i realized that my precious canon was missing and it's case left empty in my bag. i wonder what my checked luggage goes through as i go from A to B? who has the right to open checked luggage?
"TSA has the right to open any bag for security reasons. but they always leave a note behind informing the owner that they've opened it", said a TSA employee at their contact center - do they always leave a note behind?
i didn't see one in my bag. don't they screen checked luggage using x-rays? and don't those x-rays see exactly what is placed where in a bag?
"baggage handlers are only responsible for loading all checked luggage onto the plane" said a Delta airlines manager. i doubt they have the time to go through luggage as they transfer it from the airport to the plane - or do they?
i wrote to canon about this a month ago. i was hoping they could use my story/slideshow as a customer testimonial. still haven't heard from them.
Delta airlines said they don't cover electronics.
TSA said i need to file a claim.
lost and found said they haven't seen my camera.
the police said they'd get back to me and never did.
canon said to send my story to their PR department.
and British Airways just loses luggage,
so i should be thankful i'm only missing a camera - or should i?
is customer service dead? - or did someone freakin' steal that too?
