Airlines That are Most Likely to Lose Your Luggage

Lost Luggage

As an avid traveler, one of my greatest fears is an airline losing my luggage; well, that and being kidnapped in another country (like seriously).  Nevertheless, I tend to pack heavily.  If you need tips on packing, checkout my piece on “Travel Bags”.  To lose my luggage would practically be to lose a great deal of my wardrobe altogether. I have yet to master the trick of fitting everything into a carryon, and I doubt that I ever will – unless I’m flying somewhere to stay for a night!

When it comes to checked bags, there are some airlines that are more likely to lose your baggage than others.  Statistically speaking, checked bags have a low chance of being lost.  On average, about three in 1,000 bags are lost.  However, with flights averaging almost 100,000 per day, that can add up.  Below is a list of airlines that statistics show are more likely to lose luggage.

  1. ExpressJet
  2. SkyWest
  3. Frontier
  4. Hawaiian
  5. American
  6. Southwest
  7. United
  8. Alaska
  9. JetBlue
  10. Spirit

Packers beware!
