More seriously - what about Rimowa? You don't like them? I've always thought they looked great and were well built without screaming "rob me" when you travel.

You'll be happy to know I made my 30minute international connection in Zurich this morning. Also I have spent more than 4 hours in immigration on at least two occasions.

If you wear your adjustable cuffs a little 'too loose' rather than at the 'correct' setting, it can sometimes help you show the right amount of linen. With the shirt I'm wearing now if I tighten the cuffs down to where I cant get my hand through them when fastened, then it sometimes rides up my arm and gets stuck there, but at the other setting (technically slightly too loose) it moves naturally enough that my shirt sleeve is always exposed.

If I can avoid checking luggage I will, I've done international flights with nothing but a duffel bag, it's just so much easier.

I've done international transfer in Zurich in less than 30 minutes and you have to take a train for one terminal to another go through multiple passport/security checks, from my experience carriers tend to hold the flight a couple minutes, if they know you are coming from one of their own flights.


I think the color of my passport might help me from time to time.

Frankfurt is the worst for connections ime. I never check either - except I've had my bag taken by force twice on this trip.

I know my bag fits inside the Star Alliance regulations, which is the carrier I use most of the time, so they can try to take it.

I've had arguments with tsa in multiple countries about how they do their job. shog[1].gif

I have a few… two lightweight Salsa Airs (one large check in and one small for carry on) as well as a gigantic aluminum for long overseas trips that I beat the shit out of. I've enjoyed them all and have never had any problems with them at all. Furthermore, I've never been robbed in any of the airports or hotels I've visited.

I cannot find the perfect briefcase/bag. Been looking for a few weeks, tried a few, and nothing. Pretty frustrating... would for sure go April in Paris, but would be $3k+ I figure.

I usually travel with my trusting Briggs&Riley 20", which is an international sized carryon, and my leather backpack, but on my last trip, and perhaps going forward, I had to check one bag, since there is some stuff that I just need with me.  Yeah, sorta a pain.  

 

Was that 30 minutes within the EU?  I can't imagine how you could do that outside the Eurozone.  I mean, customs and re-security, even if you are speeded through, takes 15-20 minutes.  If you are just doing a connection without any of that, I once did 20 minutes within the US.  And that was also getting a boarding pass for a new flight.  My graduate student and I literally sprinted a few hundred meters with our luggage, plus some scientific cameras, from one end of a terminal, to another, with a sharp right hand turn.  In retrospect, I have no idea why we were in such a rush to get to nowhere, Florida.

Is she Asian?  All my cousins make that stupid V sign.  It's the Asian woman equivalent of the double guns.

 

Um, nice bracelet.

Stop being a self-hating asian. Embrace the peace sign.

I have the Rimowa Stealth for my check bag (which is the black painted/electrosprayed/whatever over the aluminum) and I've never had anyone try to rob me or do anything but comment on how my bag looked (and one time when it didn't make the connecting flight, the guy that delivered it to my townhouse commented on how sturdy it is, and asked how much it was shog[1].gif)
