Just wanted a second opinion on luggage locks. In my past experiences travelling to the U.S.A everytime i put a lock on my luggage (TSA approved lock) my luggage mysteriously goes missing for a few hours and am stuck having it delivered 5-20 hours later. I feel like when you do that you are red-flagging your luggage to be pulled and searched. I suspect this because i have checked several bags and only my bags that have locks on it have been "missing/lost" and the other ones turn up on time right after my flight.
Having said that, i'm concerned about airport workers stealing items from my checked bag. (paranoid i know but i cant help it i have expensive special physical sunblocks and medications that i cant be without).
Does anyone have an idea of like the top 5 items that airport workers like to steal?
