Posted April 8th, 2014 @ 5:00am



Do you travel often? Then you probably know it's always a good idea to pack a small carry on bag with some clothes and toiletries...just in case your luggage gets lost. At least that way you'd have a couple of days worth of clothes to wear.

According to the L-A Times, here are 10 THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR LOST BAGGAGE:

1. The total number of lost, delayed or damaged bags by airlines around the world dropped 17% in 2013 to nearly 22 million.

2. Of all mishandled bags, 81% are simply delayed, 16% are damaged or pilfered and only 3% are declared lost or stolen and never found.

3. The cost to airlines to find, deliver or replace mishandled bags was $2.09 billion in 2013, a 20% drop from 2012.
