Southwest Airlines moves a lot of people every day. Those people carry a lot of stuff with them. So if you lost something on a flight, what are the odds of someone you know finding it?[asset|aid=240|format=image|formatter=asset|title=RBRiPodLogoSmall.gif|width=177|height=177|resizable=true|align=right]Southwest Airlines moves a lot of people every day. Those people carry a lot of stuff with them. So if you lost something on a flight, what are the odds of someone you know finding it? Well that is what this episode of Red Belly Radio is about, two Employees, Ginger and Paula, traveling on the same plane—just not together.

I am one of the original SW Fans..... Loved Herb and his style but the new culture is not the same. Since they changed the program from trips to points or whatever I am done going to Capital One or AE and simply get $ for miles. Tried to use either my points or mileage for a one way which on the net cost $117 was quoted $300 in points for the leg... At least with AE I can choose my airline and not be jerked around by the new system.... SW you were the best now you are like the rest!

Please, if anyone found a Nook Color in a plum-colored book-like case, please let me know. It's unusable by anyone else since it's passworded and Barnes and Noble has "blacklisted" the serial number, so I really hope someone will return it. Thank you.

Lost neon-maroon/reddish Nokia Camera on Flight 539 from San Diego to Austin. It has a bunch of pictures of me and a friend of mine in San Diego...beach pics/pics with friends. These are irreplaceable. I don't even care about the camera, i only need the memory card. If you have this, please message me so I can pay for a way to get this pack. Good Karma to you!

On a flight to Orlando from Columbus on Dec. 4th I lost a Fuji Digital Camera and it has a 16 GB SD card inside with all the pictures of our 5 year old daughter Lily and Santa. She was working on picture frames for relatives that were to be a gift with one of these pictures and unfortunately I lost the camera on the plane somehow. I did file a claim with the lost and found group at Southwest but it sounds like there is little hope we will see this again. Although the camera was expensive it is the pictures we want most of all so if anyone has any input on other things we may try to get these back it would be appreciated. Since Southwest really does not offer any way to get feedback on these inquiries I am just stuck waiting. I was a little disappointed there was no way to get a message to the plane to at least ask them to check since it was a black camera and may have been wedged in the seat I had hoped this may be possible, but alas it seems not. I am also reaching out to the airports the plane was at to see if perhaps someone would have carried it off the plane and then turned it in when it did not work but after several days now it seems lost forever.

Hi All - stupid me left my iPad in the seatback pocket of my flight from Las Vegas to San Diego (flt #787) on Dec 1, 2011. It was a black iPad with a grey flip cover, in a black neoprene (wetsuit) jacket.. also had a aqua blue stylus attached to it. I'm super bummed becuase my wife had just given it to me as an anniversary gift 😞 if anyone here found it I would be greatly appreciative and would even offer a small reward or some sort. I fly back and forth to Vegas for work quite often if thats where it ended up. thanks ! Charlie 760.681.8097 cell charlie.plummer@sbcglobal.net

Hello and Happy Holidays: On Friday night, December 9th, 2011, I lost a black iPhone 4GS on the last flight from Denver to San Diego. I must have dropped it as I tried to place it in my carry on, near the 6th seat on the right as I was exiting the plane. I filed a report with Southwest of course but the folks I spoke with seemed pessimistic. The phone was 10 days old and as I was traveling and distracted. I had not yet purchased insurance. On an additional note..Love those cell phone providers: My brand new phone plan has no mercy and I must replace the phone and add a line or pay an exorbitant cancellation fee.. All in all this little fiasco will cost nearly a thousand dollars. Reminder to self: always be mindful!! Also, Sorry for everyone's losses.

Good Day! I too am in the same boat with many of the users commenting on this site about losing my I-Phone 3GS on SW Flight 1179 that departed at 2pm from Jacksonville to Fort Lauderdale on12/18. I didnt notice it was gone until later that nigth at home and it had been turned off due to landing! It's in a black Snug Fit leather case with a chew mark on the right bottom corner caused by my dog! If you by any change found this phone or know of it, please email me at mywineconsultant@gmail.com! Thanks and Good luck to everyone else!

I was on Flight 668 on Jan 1 from Chicago MDW to Salt Lake City. The plane arrived as scheduled at 10:10 PM. The flight crew stated that it was the last flight of the night and I believe they said the plane was going onto Phoenix. I was seated in row 20 next to the window and left my SLR camera under the seat in front of me. It was a Canon EOS Digital Rebel. There were two lenses in the bag. A 50 MM prime lens was attached to the camera and a 300MM telephoto lens was in the bag. There was also a spare battery in the top compartment of the bag. Perhaps most useful is the bag. It is a LOWEPRO over the shoulder bag with a slight triangle shape. I have attached a photo. I am grateful for any help or guidance you can provide. I know it would have taken a couple of days for the camera to show up in Dallas and I truly hope that is the case. $500 Reward offered, please contact me with any info

Hi, I forgot my canon rebel camera on the southwest flight December 29th 2011 from Orlando to Denver. I called and left my information with southwest and hope that someone has found it and turned it in. To be honest it is not about the camera in itself since it is replaceable but the pictures on the camera that I cannot replace. This was my first Christmas with my fiance's family and the pictures I took are priceless to me. If anyone could be good enough to let me know if you have found it I would be so grateful.!!!

My daughter and I just returned to KCI airport via Southwest this morning and are missing our Sony camara in a black shoulder bag. I am totally sick to my stomach it has her gymnastics pictures on it from her first meet in Orlando. Would be extremely grateful to have it returned!

I lost my black Mac book on a flight from San Jose to Burbank yesterday around noon time. I filled out the report but worry it's not enough. Is there any thing else I can do to increase my chances of it being found?

I have a suggestion. I love SW airlines and believe they usually try had to please. I had occasion though recently while flying #183 from Tampa to Phoenix, that as I was taking my briefcase down from the overhead compartments, unknown things fell out of my briefcase. I crawled around on my knees and found miscelaneous coins. Got home and could not get in the door as my keys no longer existed.  I submitted a lost and found report and was pleased the next morning to discover sw found my keys. Then I discovered that a $60 power bank charger was missing as well so I added it to the list. I keep getting followup messages saying NO FOUND, but they are all NO REPLY messages. I have a picture of the classy missing power bank. How do I share that fact?   It is very distinctive.

I traveled last week home from Las Vegas to Fort Lauderdale FLIGHT 5923 (last flight of night) on 1/1/2018 (landed 1/2/2018) and was sitting in row 3 at window (right side of plane as entering - left side as sitting).  I left my Nintendo Switch game in its case with all the games I own!  I have filed a lost and found report but was hoping that maybe someone on the flight found it for me?  No one called out to us and I would hate to think someone could just keep something so valuable without even trying to find the owner... It is a black game in a black case and is very important to me.  ANY help is greatly appreciated!  Southwest will only look for 30 days and I am a week in... thank you!
