comment Possible reimbursement for missed connection due to gate change
It's up to the airline but I suspect most will reimburse you after you file all the paperwork. Something similar happened to me when my plane was delayed 3 hours. We went to eat at the airport restaurant and when we came back 75 mins later, the plane had left! We were treated to a night of hotel and meals by the airline, so that we could get the next flight to our destination.

comment How to dispose of a broken suitcase at an airport?
In my case, the shop-keeper did keep the suitcase and there was no way to do anything with the broken one. It would have exceeded my baggage limit, then again I was in Puerto Rico not New Delhi, so definitely depends on the airport or maybe even the shop.

comment If a hotel staff asks me for buffet food, can there be consequences if I bring him food?
This is wrong. At a buffet, one does not pay for all the food. One pays for what you can eat in a single sitting. They won't let people take leftovers and often have a surcharge for leaving food in your plates, so that people do not take more and waste food. Taking for for someone else would be against the rule in pretty much every buffet I've seen.

comment What Happens When a Wrapped Luggage is Opened by Security?
@pnuts - You are right. They do that on arrival here in Montreal but it is very rare. This happened to me exactly once over at least 100 arrivals. One of my locked suitcase gets searched at least once out of two times at some point during the trip. It is always the suitcase that holds my tripod, so I know what looks suspicious :) and I always make sure not to pack anything fragile in the same suitcase.

comment What Happens When a Wrapped Luggage is Opened by Security?
@pnuts - Never seen a suitcase opened after the journey. Why would they? The threat of something going into the plane is over. Suitcases are almost always inspected after passing the X-ray machine on the way to the cargo hold. You are right though that sometimes this is done in the presence of the owner. Most times, it is not.

99% of the time, they open suitcases not in presence of the owner. I usually find a note saying something meaning this suitcase was searched. Now I just got a new suitcase, so I thought of wrapping it next time to keep it in good condition.
