For the very first time in my life I decide not to carry my laptop in my carry-on luggage and stuff it into my suitcase instead. Surely with all the Dateline NBC pieces on burgling baggage handlers it can't still be going on, I reason.
I call Alaska Airlines and they take the report but are very unsympathetic. Can't they hire actors who can at least pretend to care when one of their customers has personal items pilfered on their watch?
So, this is day 1 of my quest to get Alaska Airlines to find my computer.
