Delta Airlines to use technology to track luggage

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Bringing an end to the problem of lost luggage.

That's what Delta Airlines hopes to do with a new program.

The company says it will start using baggage tags with radio frequency ID technology.

Customers will be able to track their luggage while they're traveling.

The company says if a bag with one of the tags is placed on the wrong conveyor belt, a warning light goes off and will automatically stop the belt.
