Airlines Lost 10,000 Bags a Day in 2005

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?
