Preppycowgirl and Florasun brought up a good point in Aminamina's thread about airports and Birkins. Rather than hijack her thread, I thought I'd start one and just ask. In America we have bins to put your things in before they go through the x-ray machine. They're not just filthy or anything. Do they not do this in other countries? Is it easy for bags to get damaged going through the x-ray machine? What do you do to prevent it, in the USA and abroad? Do you just... not carry your H bag on the flight at all? Or do as Flora suggested with a napkin in the bottom of the bin to keep the bag from getting dirty? Thoughts, comments, suggestions, stories? TIA!
