Generally my passport and wallet stay on my person at all times when I'm traveling, so I don't understand why you would even put them in your luggage, let alone lock them in there. Especially since your passport is needed several times before you even board the plane and both items should at least be in your carry on luggage with you on the plane, not in your checked luggage. If they are in your carry on luggage, it's with you all the time, thus not needing a lock either. I could understand having a lock for the luggage during your vacation. It sucks you missed your vacation, but YDI.

You do realize that the airlines just cut those off before the bags are put on the plane, right? Basically you locked you luggage for nothing.

on TSA website they let consumers know that airport terminals sell TSA safe open locks(as well as some department stores) Locks that are marked as TSA safe on their packaging are safe for flight because TSA has master key sets for those specific lock brands all others are liable to be cut off.

I can tell you that they'll cut the lock off a big heavy duffle bag of you don't put a TSA approved lock on it. That's why I always carry on my luggage now. X-ray it and gimme it back.

#37 At that point, your luggage is in the safest place possible: under the plane and not easily accessible. If you're talking about the carry on, which is not where it seems they had put their passport, then what I usually do, if it's small enough is keep it under my seat so that it's out of the person behind me and I could also use it as a foot rest of I wanted. And that's only IF I need to and I most likely don't. No idiot is going to, on a packed plane, open up the overhead storage and steal from a bag which isn't theirs. It's like they're asking for the air marshal to arrest them right there and then.

Fun fact: an approved FML like this can be used to lower tuition to the Tripartita School of Double Checking. Here at TSDC, we'll teach you such skills as checking your face first when looking for glasses, tapping your pockets and listening for the rattle of keys before departing, and making sure it's your name written on a sales receipt instead of a lazy coworker's.
