Did an airline lose your bags last year? You’re not exactly alone. US carriers lost 10,000 bags a day in 2005, the highest number since 1990. The rate of lost bags increased 23% over 2004.
The worst offender? US Airways, which lost 9.62 bags per 1,000 passengers. Well done. Incredibly, this is 30% higher than the next airline (Delta). Gee, and why do people go insane trying to stuff their bags into overhead compartments?
