Glentaggart (n.)

A particular kind of tartan hold-all, made exclusively under licence for British Airways.
  When waiting to collect your luggage from an airport conveyor belt, you will notice that on the next conveyor belt along there is always a single, solitary bag going round and round uncollected. This is a glentaggart, which has been placed there by the baggage-hanling staff to take your mind off the fact that your own luggage will shortly be landing in Murmansk.
