Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- American Airlines

I flew out to the East Coast last weekend. Back to CO yesterday.

I flew on American Airlines. One connection on each leg of the round trip.

In all fairness, flights were comfortable and mostly on-time.

There was one problem:

AA now insists on putting a bright, red tag on all checked luggage that contains guns. The tag says:

“Return to BSO” (Baggage Security Office)

At AA, luggage containing guns does not go out to the carousal, as it does with most other airlines I fly. It is delivered directly to the AA baggage-claim office and must be surrendered personally to the legitimate claimant (after showing identification). I notice that it arrives at the baggage-claim office after all other luggage is out on the carousal, so you can now add at least ten minutes to your stay at the airport.

I guess I can understand their concern, but I don’t like this latest version of “steal me” tags hanging-off my luggage.
