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 has been a pleasure working with Monica over the past few months. She took the time to really research the area I was interested in purchasing my first home. And when we found it, she worked quickly and efficiently to negotiate on my behalf. Monica offered sound advice and she took the time to communicate about the little things, which was especially important to me as a first time home buyer. Monica also followed up regularly, just by checking in with a simple text or phone call while I was waiting in escrow. The process was much easier than I expected and it went very smoothly. I would happily and highly recommend Monica to anyone looking for a new home. Thank you for everything you’ve done over the past few months for me. I’m sure the day will come soon when we can work together again. — Jenn Jankiewicz"
