AIRLINE DAMAGE 1 Billion Pieces of luggage fly every year. Do you know which ones will get damaged?
Things you may not know - Airlines damage or lose over 24 million pieces of luggage a year.
Know your rights. Airlines are the most common cause of damage to luggage, but not the only cause. You should always immediately check your luggage when retrieving it from the carousel and lodge a claim immediately with baggage services or your airline for any damage or issues, or your insurance company.
Airlines may say they are they are not resposible for some damage, when they actually are.
DOT (US Department of Transport) states all Airlines are legally responsible for any damage and advise customers they have been trying to shirk their responsibilities. It is Federal Law in the US that airlines cover any damage they cause. Check these links - link for DOT news - US DoT - - Link to Time.com - Link Daily Mail
