Man uses AirTag and sees his wallet travel to 35 cities on American Airlines
An American Airlines passenger landed in Fort Lauderdale on Tuesday and accidentally left his wallet on board. He reported that his wallet was missing.
The man had an AirTag in his wallet and showed him it was still on the plane. And he says he’s seen purses move to his 35 cities.
He had three reactions:
- As an AAdvantage Platinum member, he needed to provide better lost and found services.
- If the airline hasn’t found your wallet, it’s clear that they haven’t thoroughly cleaned their aircraft.
- he should Miles will be added That his wallet flew away!
@American Airlines Come on… help your boy. I just fly with you and you treat me like you don’t know 🤷🏾♂️. Like I said, I know it’s not your fault that I forgot my wallet (although that flight was over an hour late, so I rushed through the airport) pic.twitter.com/IV1jnrRkXG

Of course, American Airlines no longer awards miles based on distance flown. Lost property is a real failure. Perhaps it’s because there’s little incentive for someone to try so hard to find something, bother to turn it in, or put a lot of effort into reconnecting someone who finds a lost item. Passengers with belongings. It’s hardly an American Airlines problem. the whole industry.
Coming out of the pandemic, most people assume that planes should be cleaned, but that may well be the case. sprayed We use antimicrobial agents, but that’s not the same as deep cleaning between flights, or even overnight. Very little actual cleaning happens between flights. Airplanes aren’t on the ground long enough. It also cuts down on even basic trash picking from your seat to try to make up time when your flight is delayed.
In general, airline hubs do more cleaning after long international flights than after domestic flights. It’s not something you should do, but not deep cleaning overnight seems like an inexcusable thing to me.
