    How to state the number of luggage/baggage

    Luggage/Baggage
    I understand these two are uncountable nouns.

    When I want to state the number of luggage, do I always need to use ".....pieces of"?
    For example:
    I have 3 pieces of baggage to check in.
    One of my 3 pieces of luggage is missing.

    Is there any way to say the quantity without using "....pieces of"?
    Is there any possible context where I can add "s" to luggage/baggage to make these plural?

    Thank you.

    You can say 'three bags/cases'.

    No.
    I am not a teacher.
