|Subject: Re: Locking checked baggage|
My experience of the new TSA rules is as follows.
Travelling from LHR to SBA (via LAX). Used plastic ties which were uncut when i collected my baggage at both LAX and SBA.
Travelling from SBA to LHR (via LAX). Baggage was checked by TSA in my presence after i checked in and the bag was tagged. I was then able to lock it before it went off on the belt. I assume because it was checked and labeled by the TSA, no further physical check would be done.
