Recently, we took a look at the things that travelers most hate about flying. Unsurprisingly, one of the most-hated things about flying proved to be airlines that misplace your baggage. True enough, there is nothing more frustrating than arriving at your destination only to discover that you have exactly nothing of the things you packed to bring with you.
With this in mind, we thought it would be interesting to take a look at which carriers are the worst when it comes to keeping track of their passenger’s luggage. We thought we’d see a lot of no-name carriers at the top of the charts, but we were surprised. Some of the most well known airlines in the world are also some of the most notorious when it comes to misplacing bags. What to find out who they are? Let’s take a look.
1. United Airlines
According to statistics provided by the U.S. Department of Transportation, United loses about 2 bags per every 1,000 passengers.
This may be a small regional airline, but they’re big on losing luggage. In fact, they lose roughly 1,000 bags every month!
3. Delta Airlines
In 2015, Delta took on about 22,938 reports for lost luggage, a figure that equates to 62 reports per day…
Compared to others on this list, JetBlue’s 4,900 lost luggage claims per year is pretty low… But, it’s still not good!
