    Default LV Locks - not allowed to be used on aircraft.

    apparantly you are not allowed to lock your luggage when travelling by commercial aircraft.

    here are the rules for the tsa website.

    TSA: Air Travel

    TSA screens every passenger's baggage before it is placed on an airplane. While our technology allows us to electronically screen bags, there are times when we need to physically inspect a piece of luggage. TSA has worked with several companies to develop locks that can be opened by security officers using universal "master" keys so that the locks may not have to be cut. These locks are available at airports and travel stores nationwide. The packaging on the locks indicates whether they can be opened by TSA

    TSA approved locks look like...... JUNK!

    LV Brass locks are a work of art. this makes me sick. when petty beaurocrats dictate the rules.

    in my day - you only worked at airports if you were an alcoholic/desperate.

    I hate flying on public aircraft, so many rules and restrictions.
    If love is the answer, what is the question?

    I would rather stay safe in the air than travel with a "work of art lock" on a piece of baggage.

    I agree some of the restrictions in air travel are exaggerated, but it is for our own safety.
    Also, the rules are not made by the "petty bureaucrats" but by the Dept. of Homeland Security for OUR SAFETY.

    I understand you may have had frustrating experiences, but IMO every job deserves respect and should not be belittled.

    I disagree but I can see why you would believe what you believe.

    I wouldn't put a lock on my luggage anyway. Why? Because they'll cut it off if they feel the need to look through your luggage and I wouldn't want my lock to get cut. I don't like the idea that they search through people's luggage, but there's not much you can do about it.

    When I use my Pegase I don't lock it. I have the lock on there, and I carry it on, but if someone needs to get in it to inspect to make sure I don't have a gun or bomb, I don't want anything to happen to my bag.
