Airlines losing fewer bags -- because there are fewer to lose

A good news story that provides one of those "Duh!!" moments appeared in the Chicago Tribune yesterday. The article looks at "mishandled" bag reports filed with the airlines last year, and finds that there was great improvement, especially starting in the fall when most major carriers began charging for checked luggage. Makes sense, doesn't it? If you're avoiding the fees by carrying on your bag, the airlines can't lose it. Here's the full story.
