I left my paperwhite Kindle on Virgin America flight from San Francisco on 6/13/2014 in the back of the seat in front of me. I wasn't sure it was lost until I got home.
It may have been in a black sac.

I lost a Mac Book in a black case on Sunday, July 6, coming back from Rome on American Airlines flight 235. I think its possible I left it in the men's bathroom outside the terminal on the way to the taxis. If you've seen it, please contact me at bobby.vance@gmail. I will offer you a reward!!!

The case probably also has headphones and a European adapter in it.

I left an iPad mini in the female restrooms (the first set of restrooms I came to after disembarking American Eagle 3456 from Montreal) on 25 June at around 13:15-13:30. It was on the top if the toilet seat cover dispenser, in a grey soft woollen slip. A lady entered the restroom cubicle immediately after me, and did not say anything. I only realised after leaving the terminal that I had left the iPad there. Has it been handed in? Is there any CCTV covering the area?

We flew Delta from Seattle to JFK on June 17. We had a tight connection to continue our trip onto Milan. So we are in Milan and no luggage. It is presumed to still be in New York. Normally I wouldn't care and just go shopping on Delta's dime but we are here to sing in a choir festival for the next 5 days in San Candida's. We desperately need our "uniforms"! PLEASE HELP US! We are the only group from the United States and really want to make a great impression. Both bags are upright soft bags. One soft red and the other is baby blue. Both bags are unique enough you can't miss them! Thanks. Laurigl@msn.com. For any info.

I lost my brown leather wallet, which had very important stuff inside (my driver's license, etc) and I didn't find out I lost it until I was in France the next day.

I was on American Airlines flight 120 on June 3rd and my flight was around 8:50pm to Paris De Gaulle airport. My seat was 32E. I was stranded for ten days without money! Now I have to get a new driver's license and other documents!

If you find it please contact me by my email or cell number 860-997-2432, my name is Candice Dodd

I lost my brown leather wallet at gate 3 or 6. There has my drive licence from state RI. My debit card and credit card. My name is YU YI FENG. Because of the Japan Airline changed the gate from 6 to 3. So it might be on the seat or on the ground.

Yesterday (3 june. 2014) I forgot my IPhone on the flight KL639 from Amsterdam to NY.
It is black and has a (white) transparant case. I tried to get an answer on where I should go for lost and found KLM, but no one seems to know. I talked to 8 different employees from KLM to bagage service Delta, but stil no clear answer yet. Could you tell me who to contact (name and telephone number) or do you perhaps tell me whether my telephone has been found.

how it happened ; I was passing through JFK flight Delta seven am , the people at check point asked me for my ID I gave them my passport. As soon as I gave the passport to them they gave it back to me as they said . I do not remember getting back. As I went through the machine the person asked me for all my things in my pocket . I pulled every thing out and I believe that was the last time I saw my passport. Now , who got my passport is the cameras at that moment. Please see if you can help me to find out who took my passport. As I went to put my shoes and my belt I did not see my passport . I asked the person in charge , she said to me that I had it with me , but I checked many times at her eyes looking to me. I checked on every item I on every item I had and it was not there. So, if this people are so responsible as they said they are let them look to the cameras and find who has my passport.Thanks.

I lost a Kindle Paperwhite whilst travelling and think it may be at JFK as that was the last time I saw it and it wasn't in our bags when we were got off the flight. Likely location is at gate A3 in Terminal 4, in the seating area beside A2 and facing A3. It's in a black Amazon Kindle case, slightly battered, and would have been left at approx. 20:45 on Monday 2 June.
