Extensive Definition

Airlines attach tags to luggage which is transported as checked luggage. (Such checked luggage is occasionally lost or delayed, a significant worry for travellers.) Due to current security concerns, checked luggage may be inspected and the security staff may confiscate belongings that are prohibited on-board aircraft.


Some suitcases include a telescopic handle and wheels.
