I am traveling from U.S. to India and the flight I boarded on was Jetblue and I had reached the JFK airport with that flight. Then I was supposed to take my luggage from the jetblue luggage pickup, since I'm changing flights, but I didn't have time to get my luggage and take it to the Emirates terminal. Right now my luggage is still in New York and I am already in India right now. I've been complaining and requesting with the JetBlue to try to get my luggage on board to the next Emirates flight that leaves to India but they haven't done anything yet, any help or advice? It's been a week already and it doesn't make sense to wait anymore because they might discard the luggage. Please help!

2 weeks ago i had a flight to israel, befaure the flight in the security check i put a little bag with an ipode and a phone! i put it with my bag and my shoes in a basket. when it came out of the machine everything was in different direction and i think the little bag i lost with my ipode and my phone stucked in the machine. my shoes came along but the bag we had to repute it in the machine! so then me and my family finished taking all of our stuff, and i forgot of my little bag because i thought everything will come together and i will out everything in my big bag. then we went in the airplane and i sate, then when i was about to listen to my ipode i didn't find it, i ran to the people in the door to tell them about my lost bag, they said i can't come out of the airplane, and he gave me a number + he told me he will check for me and then i gave him my husband number for him to tell us if he found it or if he didn't. I was less worried, but still it was 2 really expensive staff. then when i arrived to israel i called this number and no body answered! i stayed in israel for 2 weeks and all of this weeks i tried calling this number and no body answered. then i came back i arrived to new york after 2 weeks, and i went to the lost and found and this woman showed me 3 bags that were lost in the 2 weeks, it wasn't one of them so i kept walking and my husband kept telling me that i didn't came to the right place, so then i asked another police man in the airport and he told me to go somewhere alse not the place i went to in the first place! then i arrived to this place that the police man told me to go but it was closed, my flight to were i lived was at 7:20 and the police man told us it will open just at 7:20, so i didn't have time to go search for my little bag and not to be late to the airplane. and i had to change terminals. now i am in my house wondering how i can get it if its still there. and this is a way. thank you and i hope i can still get.

My sisters and I were traveling to LA on a United flight on 12.28.09 at 8:30am. One sister is handicapped and travels with a service dog. The dog's larger harness makes the detectors go off so we took it off. It went missing somewhere between the curbside (outside terminal 7) and the security check point at about 6:30am. If anyone has found a black dog harness (for a large dog) please contact maury151@gmail.com. We would really appreciate having the harness back. Thank you.
