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.

I lost 2 suitcases (one green Samsonite and one grey Rimowa)on the 22nd of November 2009 at JFK.
I checked in, the woman behind the desk gave me my boarding passes and told me I have to take my suitcases to the x-ray machine. The guy at the x-ray machine told me its fine and I went to the gate. But the suitcases never came with the flight to Amsterdam.
Can you please help me finding my suitcases? I already contacted KLM many times, but they say they can't do anything more than sending e-mails to JFK and wait for their answer. Almost one month now and I start getting really worried. I hope anyone can help me.
The suitcases have either Jansen or Rudolphi on the name tags.
Thank you very much in advance.
Best regards,
Theo Jansen (tel. no: +31653147970)

Thank you,

I have lost canon movie camera and greyish case on flight AA60 arriving JFK New York airport at 1045 hrs on 12/15/09. I believe to have left it under seat 37K or 37J on the plane and reported this to an American Airline staff who directed me to JFK lost and found.

I have left numerous messages on the JFK lost and found line about this but cannot reach staff.

Please call me on +61419120045 to confirm this message

Was wondering if this was posted by Violetta Parzatka?
This is Paul from Tampa. Remember me?


My JetBlue flight was Sunday 12/13 out of JFK to Orlando Int. airport. i did curbside check in around 3:15-3:30. my flight was at 5:05.
When i got home and unpacked i found a pair of eye glasses in a case in my bag that aren't mine.
There was a tag in my bag from TSA showing that my bag had been inspected. I'm guessing that how the glasses got in there. Please let me know if you think they might be yours.
