Lost Baggage

Jul 8th, 2010 | By

Stories appear in the media from time-to-time giving league tables of those airlines that lose the most luggage. At the time of the British Airways/Terminal 5 opening at Heathrow, thousands of bags were left lying around.
Now the Association of European Airlines (AEA) has decided that it will no longer publish the figures of lost baggage. Admittedly, this only gave the results of 30 different airlines who are members of AEA. There are worse airlines around the world so comparisons can only really be made in Europe. But why have they decided to axe these lists.
The reason? Because airline members say that it gave a bad image.
