That kind of makes sense that it could have been a baggage handler, but I wonder how the make that distinction between stolen and lost? And why were they lugging their own gear around? I've never seen a picture of a famous guitarist walking through the airport with a guitar case, past or present day. I guess Jimmy may have liked to have that guitar in his hotel room with him?
I think that you weren't around back then. Rock was a much smaller world, bands played theaters, and were just breaking into hockey rinks. The crews were a whole lot smaller than they are today. Zep toured in a station wagon the first time in the States. So Joe and Henry checked the gear on to the plane at the airline counter. The Starship wasn't until 1973. In 1970 I'm pretty sure that they all flew coach.
