SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA -- I have never had very many problems flying except 4 months ago when I flew Southwest into California. This wasn't the problem it was when I flew home. My son dropped me off 1 1/2 before the flight was to leave. Which gave the little thieves enough time to go through my luggage and steal about 150.00 worth of stuff from my luggage.

It was a straight flight back home and it was pretty late being one of the last few planes to land. Nothing got stolen here because the bags were downstairs by the time I got downstairs and my husband already had my luggage in hand. With that said the only place where this could have happened was at the airport in sunny San Deigo. I had my cosmetic bag stolen and a hairdryer. Moral of the story carry as much as you can on the plane!

Either a Southwest thief or more likely another TSA agent helping themselves to your valuables "again". The TSA knows they have a huge problem, but they choose to stick their heads in the sand about it. Pretty sad.

You're right on point, to carry as much stuff with your carry on.

That's unfortunate. Sorry that happened.

I wonder why they steal used hair dryers and cosmetics. The resale value has to be next to none.

You can purchase special locks for your baggage. http://www.tsa.gov/travelers/airtravel/assistant/locks.shtm . That way you at least can point to a responsible party if the loak is intact and something is missing.
