There is a known problem with the CRJ-200 having problems with the cargo door and I was even warned by a trainer to check to make sure the door was closed correctly. If you're not paying attention the door can look closed apparently but I never came across one. I've never heard of it happening on a 700 either.

This would also be the first time that they have loss any bags from the information I have.
