GPS could solve missing luggage problems

ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) - I was reading an article the other day about a GPS device for luggage.  My first thought was the device is a great idea.

I've heard horror stories from air travelers who have lost everything from golf clubs to family heirlooms.

A GPS would help track down that lost luggage.

The part I would find frustrating is when a suitcase is placed on a wrong plane while the passenger gets on the right one.

That's happened to me before.  The airline I was flying knew my bag was in Las Vegas.  They just couldn't get it to me in Phoenix.

A GPS can't fix that but I wish it could.

I'm JB and that's the way it oughta be.
