What airport has this problem?


Good for any public transportation like riding the bus, subway, or train. Did it a lot myself when I’d want to take a nap on the way to work.


LPT: Everyone at the airport has gone through security with ID and picture taken. It’s very unlikely anyone will steal your bag there because it is very likely they will get caught.
