Above, you can see the results of a baggage-check-in snafu at the American Airlines terminal at JFK today. The computerized system was down, causing hundreds of bags to be left in the terminal and thousands of people's travel plans to be delayed. Planes were held on the ground, and many took off without the passengers' luggage. Just looking at this picture makes us shudder. There's no way a lot of these people are getting their suitcases back.

You know what the best part is? Those new fees you now have to pay for checking your bags? Not refundable. Even if they are lost. Happy Wednesday!
