It has been a norm in our part of the world like Dubai, Lebanon, Jordan and the Middle East Area to have alot of fellow passengers ask you if you can help them by slipping in one of their bags with yours during checkin ask alot of them travel with trillions of bags!!!! I never allowed this before 9/11 cause it was simply unsafe and could get you in trouble - (In Thailand it could be the death penalty if they find narcotics in these bags)
And now after 9/11 as I am a frequent traveller, I still get the same kinda request from people who beg us to slip one or more of their bags to avoid paying the excess weight charges..... Will these people ever learn???
Do you experience this in your part of the world?
