Ugh, anyone ever lose anything important on a plane?

And if you got it back, what steps did you take to get it back? I've been doing everything I can think of to get my 3DS back that I lost almost two weeks ago now. It had all my games and stuff with it man, and I don't want to re-play much less re-buy everything.

I need as much as I can get because I feel clueless and its starting to really bug me hard.

I never lost anything on a plane before.. BUT I have lost some precious stuff... Like my original first model GBA (GameBoyAdvance), which was the first I ever had.. I still own a gba, but I have the new SP model with lighting. This was how I lost it.. I was at a local park near my high school waiting for the bus to stop by to pick us students up, and it must've slipped off of my pocket onto grass at the time when I got up, and that was it... Or it could have been a thief student behind me that snatched it.. Just some guesses. I know I didn't forgotten it somewhere. I was really bummed because I put a lot of hours into a game that was with the system. It's called 'Final Fantasy Tactics Advance', I don't know if you ever heard of that game. I got nearly all of the obtainable characters, equipment, etc. I was pretty pissed.. Next thing I lost was my.. first cellphone *shakes head*.. a Sony Ericsson w810i model or something like that... It slipped off of my hoodie jacket that had large side pockets without me noticing; gone forever. I am still very bummed to this day, and somewhat can't get over it after all these years. It was an expensive cellphone and was my first too. Next, some of my school backpacks that was stolen from me. -_-

So yeah, I can relate what you must be going through, ugh the agony.. Sorry to hear you lost your 3DS. That really sucks.

I left my brand new prescription sunglasses. Never got them back, and I tried.

I assume you have already called the airline's lost and found?

Sorry, but I would not hold my breath.

Unless you call and tell them it has an anthrax sample inside, then they will find the ds (and you) quick. Probably not the best idea though.

Lol Yeah anything that is contagious and deadly will alert them enough to look for it pronto .

Try contacting them and letting them know. Don't give up just yet.. you never know if it may show up.. good luck getting it back, Herp.

Like OVT i lost a pair of sunglasses on an airplane, Continuously called and harassed them about it for months, eventually got someone to go take a look and they found them! I would keep calling and calling and eventually they will either threaten to call the police or they will go look for it

I think I found it guys, this morning I decided to send an email to the airport I was going to (in Venice) and they sent me an email back saying they found my item.

I asked if they could send me a picture or something so that I can 100% confirm it is mine but I don't think they would tell me they found something that isn't mine, right?

Now I have to ask...how does one get something like this shipped from Venice to New York and what's that even run?

Then you think to yourself, what is cheaper? Getting it back or buy a new one?

Idk the cost to get it back but I know with the games and all it goes for a few hundred.

It was a limited edition 3DS XL so it's gone up like $50 since I've bought it. Even if I didn't get the same one though a 3DS XL is like $200

I tend to "leave" books on airplanes.

Once I bought one of those super nice soft cushions that make your many hours of tourist class more bearable. I think I got one use out of it...

So, nothing important. But if I were you, I would just call around. You may get lucky.
