Braunstein and Kimble observe correctly that, in the Innsbruck experiment, Nature 390, 575 (1997), one does not always observe a teleported photon conditioned on a coincidence recording at the Bell-state analyser. However, when a teleported photon appears, it has all the properties required by the teleportation protocol.
