Luggage loss is one of the most common complaint case in airline passengers. Bad relation to the passenger luggage from the airport staff creates unpleasantness and frustrations for the passengers, and it can cost them money too, and take some time to be dedicated for problem solving, which could change the plans of the passenger, which leads to the unwanted displeasure. In this article you can find some legal advice for what to do in such cases.
Relying on Montreal Convention, airline companies are responsible for your luggage and they usually allows you to check out if there is some limitation in that responsibility. Remember that if you carry something valuable in your luggage, you should make sure to make specific statement of interest in luggage delivery from the airline company, or you should take the valuable thing in your hand luggage.
Claims are evaluated in two ways:
Damage or loss resulted by passenger, luggage or cargo being late
Ravage caused by obliteration, loosing or damaging the luggage
If you notice that your luggage is damaged after the receiving it on the luggage area, make sure you go to the airport luggage handle center, and fill the Property Irregularity Report ( PIR).
If your luggage does not arrive at all, than you should definitely go to the luggage handling center at the airport to make the PIR claim. Before you carry on to your activities, make sure you get the copy of the PIR and ask the handling agent for any contact to be sure that you will be informed about your lost luggage timely. Handling agent is capable to track your luggage through luggage tracking system, and he will inform you what happened to it.
Airline companies in most cases do not take any responsibility for your inconvenience, stress or any other effects that could be caused by luggage loss.
If it comes that your luggage is lost or damaged, you can ask for recompense from airline company or the provider for travel insurance. Airline companies can pay you out up to 1300$, so if you want to take that recompense, you should make the claim no more that 7 days from the official luggage loss.
