Hi guys! A lot of us are prolly hopping on planes to see family at this time of year and I thought I would share a link from an article on yahoo.com called "Confessions of a Baggage Handler". http://travel.yahoo.com/p-interests-21267640;_ylc=X3oDMTFrZTFhN3F0BF9TAzI3MTYxNDkEX3MDMjcxOTQ4MQRwb3MDMQRzZWMDZnAtdG9kYXltb2QEc2xrA2JhZ3M- Hope this works! I take at least one of my LV purses where ever I travel to, sometimes I pack a couple more for variety. After reading this article, I know I'll only carry on my luggage or use a different, non-designer brand if I'm checking it in. Happy Holidays to you all! Have safe & happy travels!!!
