Your Luggage Has A Better Chance Of Getting Where You're Going These Days

There's good news and there's bad news when it comes to your bags on airlines. The good news: airlines cut the rate of mishandled and lost bags in 2012 by almost 48%! The bad news: some of that drop is due to the fact that airlines are flying less flights AND handling less bags. With airlines now charging fees for your bags, many people are making due with just what they can carry on.

But there is evidence of increased effort to safely get your bag to the same place you're going, and there's new technology being used to make this happen. USA Today has the story.
