That Spice Girl Victoria Beckham ("Posh") is one tough bargainer. After her luggage was stolen at London's Heathrow Airport after she flew home from Miami on Sunday, Posh presented her compensatory demands to British Airways: free first class travel for life for herself, her soccer star husband David Beckham and their child, Brooklyn. Mind you, it wasn't a knapsack that was swiped, but, reportedly, three $3,161 Louis Vuitton designer suitcases. British Airways didn't meet Beckham's ultimatum, but it's been reported that the carrier did fork over about $165,000 to the pop star. A BA spokeswoman also told Reuters that a "couple of items" had been recovered but would not say whether or not there were any suspects in the case.
