Hmmm...gotta read this one. My friend was just here visiting over Xmas...US Airways lost her bag for 12 days and just located it. Make sure you put your name and address INSIDE of your bags!

That doesn't seem to matter, ABC news did a show about lost and stolen luggage and even luggage thrown away.
There were 5 items all properly labeled that had not been returned among them a wheelchair!

When you find a big kettle of crazy, it's best not to stir it.

KC, what WERE you doing out of your underwear? And how did it get to Alaska? Did it at least phone home and tell you what a great time it was having there without you?? laugh

If you must know, Spurs, it continued on to Anchorage in my luggage while I stayed in Seattle. So far as I could discover, it stayed overnight in a nice hotel, had a few cocktails and returned to me the next day. I'm not sure it was being totally honest with me, though . . . . eek

Well, in this case, the inside labelling would have helped. US Airways said that all the tags came off, so they sent it to some central processing place where they open and inventory and then try to match with your description. Luckily she had some old magazines with her neighbors address on them. US Airways called the neighbor and the bags are on their way back to NJ.
