Worm starts to get airborne gripping elephants' trunks? (7)


I believe the answer is:


'trunks?' is the definition.
(a traveller's trunks or cases)

'worm starts to get airborne gripping elephants'' is the wordplay.
'worm' becomes 'lug' (lug is a kind of worm).
'starts to' suggests taking the first letters.
The initial letters of 'get airborne gripping elephants' is 'gage'.

(Other definitions for luggage that I've seen before include "Travelling bags etc." , "gear carried" , "Cases etc for travel" , "Travelling cases" , "case?" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
