Good call by the court. The linked photo clearly shows that the duffle's zipper was busted and that someone had tried to temporarily close it with tape. It was not their fault that the dildo was sitting on top and probably reeking of ass and anal lube. I wouldn't touch it either.

An attorney once explained to me that airlines Incorporate each aircraft as a corporate entity separate from the airline operating company; the parent focuses on Brand, Marketing, Customer Service, Ticketing etc. Operation of the physical airframe is a "leased-to" arrangement with the brand name. This limits the liability in case of an incident to the worth of the corporation's sole asset ... the airframe.

Crews are leased, as well as all "services" such as baggage handling, operating under a trade name agreement.

Continental wouldn't be liable. The baggage service leased rights to the brand name under a service agreement would be liable.

So, once again, Congress has made EVERYTHING a complete hash by structuring taxation and employing human beings the two greatest threats a business faces. Businesses keep finding ways to dodge the bullets Congress aims at their hearts. But in refusing to be made the bad guys so Congress has cover, American enterprises have taken radical and radically crazy steps to defend themselves against Congress.

Wanna be pissed?

Call up the 535 criminal morons who have clawed their way into the seats in Congress.

This is incredibly disturbing ruling by the court, we expect the treaty mentioned to limit the liabilities of the airline carrier if they act in good faith. You are taking a 25~75lb package and moving it a couple of hundred/thousand miles, things will go wrong.

But if the allegations were true, a product of actual intentional vandalism. Would the airline be responsible if the employees planted drugs in the luggage?

Radak: Well, as long as it was only a dildo.


Just remember it's "a" dildo, never "your" dildo.

"They taped a dildo to my luggage!" is the proper thing to say. Never say "They took out my dildo, greased it up and taped it to my luggage."

Peni- more than one penis

*goes back and sits in corner*

You're already in the corner, now turn around and face the wall so I can put this hat on you. Penis may have come from another language but it's an English word now and follows English pluralization rules; penises is fine.


Peni would not have been correct even in the original Latin; it would have been penes. According to the dictionary, either penises or penes is acceptable. Peni is wrong.

cig-mkr: What pisses me off is the fact that they went into someones luggage. What do the handlers do, pick out a random suitcase and check it out for shait? Never pack anything you aren't willing to lose. Hey the TSA made it easy for them by not allowing you to lock you suitcase.


From the pic, it appears the bag broke and was repaired ad hoc.

Honestly, look at the picture. It looks as if the bag burst open, the dildo was exposed and someone tried to tape the entire bag shut. You can clearly see that the zipper on the bag is broke.

WTF. Two clowns trying to get money over their own shoddy luggage.

Corporate America is so weak, they couldn't prevent even one of those 535 radical anti-business activists from getting elected?
Yeah, that seems legit.

Boy am I glad I'm an organic-citizen and not a corporate-citizen.

It's more disturbing to me that Continental is using minors to handle luggage. Only a 12 year old would do something this stupid.
