TSA is estimating some 25 million people will travel for the Thanksgiving holiday.
That means a lot of checked bags, and a lot of chances of something going wrong. So what happens if your bags are lost or delayed?
That's why some passengers carryon luggage rather than checking it.
If you have a consumer problem, Randy Mac has your back.
This past summer, nearly half a million bags were reported lost or delayed, according to the Department of Transportation.
But if you check bags, and they're lost or delayed, you have rights.
- For delayed bags, airlines will pay reasonable expenses -- like toiletries and clothing - until you get your bag.
- For lost bags, airlines will reimburse the depreciated value of your belongings - up to $3,500.
- If your bags are delayed, be sure to keep all your expense receipts.
- For both lost and delayed bags, be sure to ask the airline about the deadline to file a claim. And request a refund for your baggage fees.
