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)

On 12/16/09 I left a black plastic portfolio case in a luggage rack on a New York Airport Service bus. I was traveling from JFK to Grand Central. I'm wondering if it got turned in anywhere. It's about 2.5 by 3 feet. I have a semesters worth of photographs I printed. It's incredibly important. I guarantee a reward for it's return.
Thank you,

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.

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.

Hi! I've lost my Toshiba notebook on Nov,16 at 8 Terminal of JFK around 5 pm right at the security check point of that terminal.Guys! never ever let security to check your belongs when you ain't be able to see that are they doing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My story. I came to JFK at terminal 8 to fly to Saint-Petersburg(RUSSIA)by Finnair. When I came to a registration desk a finnair guy told me that they've got a strike for a 2 days.Anyway they proposed to send me to Saint Petersburg by American Airlines throught Paris.So,when I with the AA tickets came to security a couple securities guys started to check my belongs.Because I was very nervious about the time I didn't pay enouth attention that one of them get out my comp from my bag and send it by X-ray.Since when my comp dissapired because the security didn't want to put my comp back and I was very nervious. Thank you JFK very much!!!! I love you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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!
