I was traveling from BWI (Baltimore) Flt DL-6076 on 24 Nov 09 to JFK (New York). I checked my luggage at BWI with enroute thru JFK to DOH (Doha,Qatar). I arrived at JFK and changed Airline/Flight (Qatar Flt QR-84). When I arrived in Doha and went to pick up my luggage, I saw it was wrapped a plastic bag. I asked the attendant what happened and he told me that this was how Qatar Airlines received it at JFK. My suitcase was completely distroyed. It looks like it fell off the luggage truck and it was ran over and everything was displaced. I had to file a claim with Qatar Airlines.
If Delta Airline Reps are reading this, my luggage claim ticket is 7006DL583443. Everything in my suitcase was just recently brought. This was my first time to the US. and I'm very disapointed.

Why is there no anti bacterial wipes or wash available at immigration. So many have to place their hands on the screen. Swine flu is worldwide so i would have thought that USA would have in place preventative measuresto stop this nasty virus spreading to their country!

please do not loss any items at jfk airport as the number you call will only give you machines to talk to and cost you a fourtune in the mean time. If anyone form this airport reads my email please look for my glasses lost at terminal 4 gate b22 monday 26th october and if they have not been handed in reply so that I can make a claim on my travel insurance which I cannot without getting something in writing and if delta is looking at this the big majority of your staff were great but the man at gate 22 on monday evening was very unhelpful when I asked about lost property sham on him.

unfortunately I lost my engagement ring.
After landing at JFK with flight LH400 on October 25th I went through immigration (at around 2:30pm). Directly after retrieving my luggage I went to the men's bathroom just before customs. There I took off my ring and put it beside the sink while washing my hands...I must have forgotten it there...and went straight through customs...

It is a wide silver ring with imprinted gold loops and a very thin platinum band around the diameter.

Please contact me if you found this ring...I will happily pay a handsome reward...

I was traveling from JFK to DIA on Friday 16th October. I checked two bags, a suitcase and a small camera bag with no camera gear in it. That bag was open when it came out off the baggage carasel. The only thing of personal value that was missing from it was a small memory card holder the was grey with red trim and looked kind of like a very small wallet and was attached to the bag by a cord. The cord had been snapped off and now I have lost 3000 of my brothers wedding photos. I am offering a $1000 reward for it's return with the memory cards, no questions asked.
