Two phones have been stolen from me between spring and now. Once in the gym and the other While walking down the street in bklyn my phone was snatched from my hand.. That was a very traumatic experience, being so violated. I had replaced it and was always careful. I travelled around Italy and back with it and have managed to not loose it again. Unfortunately, this morning I realized that I did not have my phone. the last time I recall having it was outside of terminal 8 walking towards my cousin's car, AA International Arrivals. My bag fell in the street and I may have lost it there. As I am sure you can imagine, I am very stressed. I am a school teacher and my entire calendar as well as so many important numbers that I have had to work hard to replace are in this phone. Getting this phone back would be such a blessing. I have found phones in the past and returned them. I am praying that this good karma will come back to me, as I have had such bad luck with phones in the past. Thank you so much!

We have over 600 pictures of our honeymoon on the memory card and it is very important to us. I don't care about the camera, just the memory card. please contact me if you have the memory card. a reward will be given. ryan20741@aol.com or 732-233-4222

Goodmorning. I went on flight 740 on August 29th 2009, leaving from Ponce, Puerto Rico to Jfk New York Leaving at 5:05 am arriving at 9:00am. I arrived around 9 am in the morning in JFK on August 29th (Saturday). The phone is a Sony Ericsson TM506, Amber. It is a flip phone. It fell out of my phone when my purse went sideways on Aisle 17. This really isnt valuable, but the phone had several photos and videos of my one year old son that are irreplacable. Please contact me if found. There is a reward.

I spoke with my cellphone company and they told me that no one has used the phone which means it is still in the plane in between the seats. If someone had taken it, they would have used it and it would have shown on my statement and bill, but I made a last call when I arrived and that has been the last one. It is still in that plane. I beg of you, jetblue and the airline to check aisle 17 on that Jetblue plane. It would mean the world to me, if you guys can look through it. CAll me if you found the phone, my number is 4133643119.

Thank you.

I was hand carrying some expensive recording equipment so I stuck my laptop in my luggage... in a laptop bag... at the bottom of my suitcase. I KNOW it was in the bag when i checked it in at JFK, but it didn't arrive in England. They broke a picture frame while they were ripping my laptop out too. I had the most amazing time in New York, but, JFK airport put a downer on my whole vacation. Worst airport in the world (and i've been through many of them). After speaking to my airline, they told me that I could get a claim out of it but i'll never see my laptop again. Worst airport in the world. rudest terminal staff i have ever met.

I work in an airport. I service the Rapiscan machines they use to scan our baggage. The only way for this to happen is for someone to see the laptop on the screen and know exactly where to find it. Usually, the baggage moves so fast that the operator wouldn't have time to get out of his chair to do that... so... someone else did it for him. They've probably been doing it enough to get real good at it by now.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I checked in for Lufthansa flight 411 on 10th Aug. I was travelling to Istanbul via Munich. 1 out of 3 pieces of my lugagge did not make it to Istanbul. After checking their records Lufthansa informed me that the bag never boarded the flight from JFK.

This leads me to believe that it got stuck at the X-ray machines where it was dropped off with the other 2 pieces of luggage. If it got lost anywhere else in the airport, it would have been picked up by Lufthansa Lost & Found.

The piece of luggage was a burgundy/pruple soft upright case. It is of a relatively large size and had a small bright green padlock on it. Also on it was a lufthansa yellow "HOT" tag. Inside, among other things there were the following:

- can of cappuccino (500 grams)
- chocolate syrup by Hersheys
- 2 cans of vanilla coffee, (500 grams each)
- Purple large shawl (scarf) with purple flower pattern
- Size 39 white ladies sports shoes by Puma
- Large Yellow bag containing ladies clothes:
- Pink makeup bag containing:
white ladies bag by Guess, inside the bag 1 men’s T-Shirt
- Braun silk-epil epilator and charger
- 1 sunscreen by Banana Boat
- Medium size Blue gentelman’s shirt Abercombie and Fitch
- 5 pairs of ladies underwear, in the inside pocket of the suitcase.
- Pink bra in the luggage pocket

Any help would be immensely appreciated. Will pay a REWARD.
