A Vancouver ticket agent says she remembers checking a suitcase that later blew up on an Air India jumbo jet.
Jeanne Bakermans was testifying at the trial of two men accused of plotting to destroy the aircraft.
- IN DEPTH: The Bombing of Air India Flight 182
Flight 182 blew up over the Atlantic in June 1985, killing all 329 people on board.
Two B.C. men, Ripudaman Singh Malik and Ajaib Singh Bagri, have pleaded not guilty to murder in a trial that began last month.
Bakermans was working the check-in counter for Canadian Pacific airlines in Vancouver on June 22, 1985.
She told the court that an Indo-Canadian man insisted that his bags be checked straight through to New Delhi via Toronto, even though his seat had not been confirmed.
Bakermans says the man was angry when she refused. They argued but she changed her mind because the airport was busy and the next person in line was also starting to get upset.
A short time later, a second man checked his bags on a different flight to India via Japan.
Bakermans says she doesn't remember that transaction and she has never been able to identify the man she argued with.
The bags she checked for the second man also contained a bomb that went off at a Tokyo airport, killing two baggage handlers.
