I know the rules are that you have to fly with your luggage but I have to say that is just not always happening. On at least 2 occasions over the last 3 years our luggage has left before us. When we've arrive at the final airport and everyone else's luggage has been claimed I have found mine either locked or not locked in the office of the airline I've flown in on.
The other scenario to think of - if your flight is not suppose to leave without your luggage or vis-versa how come some much luggage goes to the wrong city/country. This is a common occurance - it just rather makes a mockery of the rules about luggage and passenger flying together don't you think.
