Visiting London, Cambridge and the very interesting 2010 British Colloquium in Theoretical Computer Science at Edinburgh was splendid! More later. But a poll is called for. How to call the area to collect your baggage: “Baggage reclaim” or “Baggage claim”?

Hello Gil,
I am quite glad you have made that poll. Actually, I have written a post about the baggage claim or reclaim question, having noticed the difference between British and other European airports. You have find the post here:

To me, the correct term should be “Baggage Reclaim”. The baggage is already yours; you just need to reclaim it after giving it away for the flight.
Cheers,

Wow that was unusual. I just wrote an very long comment but after I clicked submit my comment
didn’t appear. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again.
Anyhow, just wanted to say excellent blog!
It’s clearly a Baggage Claim. Why would somebody call it baggage reclaim?
Have you ever thought about including a little bit more
than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything.
However just imagine if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts more,
“pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this site
could undeniably be one of the most beneficial in its field.
Awesome blog!
