Mid-Air Thefts

Recommended Posts

South African Airways (SAA) has blacklisted a passenger amid reports that gangs of thieves are operating 30,000 feet in the air on its flights.

 

Passenger Warren Becker told local media that jewellery and $1,800 (£1,300) in cash was stolen from his bag while he slept on a flight from Johannesburg to Hong Kong last month.

 

SAA says there is a suspicion that a crime syndicate is targeting the route.

 

Three such thefts occurred over as many weeks in December, a spokesman added.

In 2014, there were thefts of $2.6m on flights to Honk Kong, according to official police figures.

SAA - a troubled airline. As is O.Tambo a problem airport.

Three thefts from my luggage . Still investigating - now years later.

Stopped SAA and now ONLY use Emirates or Singapore Airlines.

I depart out of King Shaka International.

Biggest thieves in the USA are the TSA bunch!

 

They have stolen and broken more items in my checked luggage and when I file a complaint,

it is always..."...we are not responsible..."

 

Bullshit...you go in my luggage, without just cause, you steal and break items...you are fucking responsible!!!

Not responsible...... that is why I put a bottled of fermented fish sauce on top of my items in each suitcase.

 

What's the purpose of that? If it breaks then your stuff will smell.
