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'.
