We just returned from our cruise out of Miami. We arrived and departed through MIA, and want to warn folks about something. This is probably well known for people who fly in and out of there all the time, but it shocked us. Upon our arrival home and during our unpacking, my husband noticed some of his prescription pills spilled in his toiletry bag. Yep, a baggage handler, had opened his suitcase and took 1/3 of the pills from the bottle, and didn't get the cap back on all the way. We would not have even noticed if the handler hadn't been so sloppy.
My concern is for older folks travelling who may have a lot of prescription drugs and may not notice a few missing pills. PLEASE keep all your medications in your carry-on luggage! And DON'T put anything of great value in your checked luggage.
NOW we know why they have those luggage plastic wrap vendors at MIA!
