I have an 8 hour wait for an international transfer at Johannesburg airport and will be changing airlines. I am very concerned about the stories of theft and tampering of luggage at this airport.
How can I collect and recheck my bag when I am in transit? Then what do I do with the bag for that long? I want to plastic wrap the bag but am told that Australian airports do not have this service, is this true and can I do it myself at home before I leave?
