I was looking at another photo website and saw a pic of TLV, which included the LD3 container storage area. I noticed that there were a few scattered containers marked with AA's stickers, including more recent AA.com decals. If AA's service to TLV is limited to a few codeshares, how could their LD3s have possibly made it to Israel?

Simultaneously, I have noticed at a lot of airports that there are storage areas for these containers, most of which seems haphazard(eg. at HNL there might be a one or two JL next to five DL next to one NZ next a few AA...). How is all of this managed?


Give me a break, I created this username when I was a kid...

an LD-3 is a standard container. it doesn't care what the plane it's loaded in says on the side. And most airlines use barcode tracking of their equipment now. so if the bags are scanned into a certian container for a certain flight, it will show up as that number, in that position. as long as the airlines systems talk to each other, it can be auto matically traacked. They do get lost from time to time, though.
