We meet with hundreds of travelers a year leaving Greenville, South Carolina.  Some common issues that arise are easily fixed when you have the knowledge to do so.  One of those things is what to do if you leave something of value on the airplane.  As your full service travel agency in Greenville, South Carolina, we want to help.

Here’s a blog article that will give some practical guidance on what to do if this happens to you:

  • After you leave the airport – Most of the time it’s not until after you leave the airport that you realize that you don’t have your iPhone. Thank goodness that you’re a smart traveler and downloaded a tracking app on it so that you can see it’s still in the pocket of the seat on the airplane.  What should you do?  Call the airline.  They will direct you to their online help desk where you can file a claim and if someone finds it then they’ll get it returned to you.


  • Before you leave the airport – If you’re still behind the security gates when you realize that you’ve left it, quickly beeline back to the gate. More than likely the airplane cleaning crew has found it and turned it into the gate attendants.  If you didn’t realize that you left it until you’ve already gone through the security gate then you’ll need to head on over to the carriers baggage department customer service desk and let them know which flight you were on and what seat you were sitting in.  That way they can call up to the gate and have them check for it.

Leaving something on the airplane can be a very stressful situation..especially if it’s something as important as your iPhone.  As your travel agency of choice, we’re here to help.  We want to ensure that you have the best experience possible and whether it’s getting you the customer service phone numbers or calling them ourselves, we’re here for you.
