Subject: Checked luggage & locks/ties

I have followed the discussion about luggage ties and nail clippers. I always thought it was silly to tell us to use the ties and then not allow us a way to carry something to remove them.

We recently flew to Cancun, Mexico from Detroit, MI on ATA and we were not allowed to have ANY locks or luggage ties on our checked luggage. The desk agents were refusing any luggage that was sealed or locked in any way.

Just thought I would let everyone know.
