It's the best of times and the worst of times for Kim Kardashian. The multimillionaire reality star has captivated rapper Kanye West and subsequently the international media. Now if she could just manage her travel debacles.

While Kim's been abroad promoting her fragrance in England, followed by a jaunt to Cannes, where her beau West screened his new short film, she hasn't had the easiest time getting around.

Returning back to Los Angeles on Friday, Kardashian tweeted frustration with British Airways over some items she alleges the airline removed from her bag.

"Very disappointed in British Airways for opening my luggage & taking some special items of mine! Some things are sentimental & not replaceable," she wrote

"What happened to the days when you could lock your bags! We need to get back to that. There's no sense of security & no trust."

Another reason that return trip wasn't so rosy: One of Kim's handlers got into a verbal smackdown with an LAX police officer -- one the staffer accused of asking for an autograph in lieu of thwarting the ever-present paparazzi surrounding Kim. 

"We're not here to do any service for [Kardashian]. We're here for the needs of the international terminal." the police officer told the Kardashian team member in video obtained by TMZ.
