    I get that they don't want to allow carry-ons and all that crap. But seriously, should there be some sort of requirement that if they do this there has to be someone competent involved with getting the bags packed?

    were they really LOST or were they just delayed? There's a big difference. Bags rarely go missing completely.

    Does five in a row from '05 to '09 count? :)

    Unless your flight to the US from Canada is over three hours, you're better off driving or walking. Either one would probably be faster.

    This happened to Sidney Crosby following the WJC tournament in Grand Forks, where his championship jersey went missing, turned out a baggage handler swiped it if I remember correctly

    If you're Halle Berry however, you can move to the front of the line


    On Jan 4., while others were worrying about missing their flights as they languished in the queues for U.S. Customs at Montreal's Trudeau International Airport, Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry, her partner Gabriel Aubry and 22-month-old daughter Nahla breezed past the lineups, escorted by a uniformed police officer.

    I hope the officer got an autograph.

    This just in: famous people get preferential treatment.
