From Russell Hill: "I recently read in a newspaper that almost 100,000 claims for missing items have been filed with US airlines since it became necessary to leave your checked baggage unlocked. The airlines blame the new Security personnel, the government blames airline employees. Have any/many of you had items go missing? I think I'll ship my baggage via UPS from hereon in."
From Tom Wilson: "My family is located throughout the US and we're looking to get together during Thanksgiving week '04. We've got all ages participating (3 yrs to 75 yrs with teens and their baby boomer parents in between). Typically we like to stay in condos or other facilities that provide similar accomodations (i.e. kitchens etc). I'd appreciate hearing suggestions from folks. Thanks!"
From Emil J. Kiehne: "What issues do foreign travelers face in Europe during the Christmas holidays? How should tourists spend their time on Dec. 24-26? Are attractions, hotels, restaurants closed on those days?"
From Zinochka Wyss: "Has anyone else found travel agents are getting very unethical lately? They want to charge your credit card the day you call or email but don't want to send your tickets until much later. One air consolidator charged my credit card and still had not sent my tickets 34 days later in spite of 4 emails demanding that he do so. We finally got our tickets just 6 days before we were due to leave!"
