Never check in any fragile shooting equipment to the convey belt. If you fly from a cold country to the tropics, temperature diff will produce moisture on your equipment. Secondly, if you have seen how they transfer the baggages, they just anyhow throw. We don't have to talk about camera stuff. I have cracked CDs before. Speaking from experience.
