How do you feel when you arrive at your destination safely, only to discover the airline lost your luggage? GRRR!
Oh, do I know how horrible that is. When I lived in Dallas, I went to Australia for three weeks. I flew Down Under from San Francisco. But the Dallas clerk accidently sent my luggage to San Diego instead. I spent 3 days with only what I had with me in my carry on. Not fun!
That disaster is less likely when your luggage leaves from Las Vegas's McCarran International Airport. McCarran, along with Hong Kong International Airport, were the two pioneers using bar codes on baggage tags back in 2005. These bar codes have radio frequency identification (RFID) to track suitcases more accurately.
Here's how it works: a scanner emits a radio signal that captures a series of unique numbers stored on the chip of your baggage tag.
Next time you fly out of McCarran and get to where you are going, peel a luggage tag apart. You will see a tiny copper chip surround by a silver antenna. Wondrous!
These tags are 400 percent more expensive than the paper ones, so lot of airports can't afford to use them, 11 years later. Delta, for one, is just exploring getting these tags for all its flights. At least you know where your luggage is when you're in Las Vegas. (Although you can't always say that with the rest of your party!)

"It was a pleasure to work with Jake. Jake was extremely responsive and very flexible. He showed me every house I wanted to see and also recommended a few homes for me. I can't speak highly enough of my experience all throughout the home search, negotiations, and closing. Jake was tremendous, he quickly handled any issues that may have risen and he answered all my emails and texts promptly, showed the house well and did everything he said he would do in a very timely manner. Jake gave me great advice many times and I could not be more happy with his service. I highly recommend him to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home.
Thank you for everything Jake!"
