Biretta tip to Patrick Madrid, who also flies a lot. Delta (with which I am … never mind…) has a new app for the iPhone that tracks your checked luggage. I have used it, as a matter of fact, recently. I had a flight delay that caused me to miss a connection. The app tracked my bag, as advertised!
To advertise their app Delta has a video of where your bag goes, from the time it disappears behind the rubber flaps until you pick it up. They made a case with 6 cameras and sent it from Atlanta to La Guardia in NYC.
Remember this one?
