Involuntary baggage separation is not considered a breach in security (at least in the US).
However, if you've checked in and decide not to show up at the gate and your bag is not removed, there will be heads rolling and fines imposed.

That question is easy enough for me. The 80-400mm would be more flexible. But would this flexibility be at the expense of quality and resolution as the 80-400mm seems to be a dated design relative to the other lens?
