Stolen iPad on JFK-SFO Virgin America

Jump to last reply

As I boarded Virgin America from JFK to SFO, the flight attendant told me that there's no space left for my carryon in the cabin above my seat so he grabbed it to find space elsewhere. As I settled in my seat I realized that I needed to get my iPad but the flight attendant told me that he actually checked in my carryon from the gate at no charge as he could not find space and handed me a small baggage tag. I was completely dumbfounded since my carryon was not locked but it's just not possible to retrieve it according to the attendant.

No surprise, my unlocked carryon arrived on the carousel in SFO and my iPad was gone!
Virgin America agents (ground and on the phone) told me that's unusual and unfortunately they are not liable for anything missing inside a locked or unlocked luggage even when it was taken on board from a passenger. They told me that I should call the JFK police department to report that my iPad was stolen but they are not liable for it as written in their online ticket contract of carriage.

The lesson here is never entrust your carryon to any flight attendant at Virgin America.
