|Subject: Re: New Luggage|
Hello Fellow Travelers,
On the subject of purchasing new luggage I thought I might add a caution. Several months ago I read an article, probably in the Wall Street Journal, concerning new luggage designs that take increased airport security into mind.
Luggage manufacturers are working on new designs that will allow for quicker trips through security and less trouble and mess if your luggage is hand inspected. For example, one manufacturer is looking at adding an additional outside pocket for temporary storage of shoes as they go through the x-ray machine.
Travelers whose luggage is still usable might want to wait and get the newer security enhanced luggage.
