I never imagined myself lose mobile phone on the plane. But this was what happened:
checking my phone before the departure, then put it inside the pouch at the back of the front seat. I was sure I would take it out when the plane land. Then I started watching movies. After 2 movies, when the flight really arrived at the destination at about 10pm, I totally forgot about the phone and got off.
At the moment we stepped into the cab, I was searching my phone for the hotel address, then suddenly I remembered that the phone was still in the pouch, “OMG! I left my phone on the plane!” I screamed, but with a tired toddler, and an impatient husband, I could not get off the cab and go back to fetch my phone. (I guess it wouldn’t be possible at that point anyway).
In my mind, I was imagining all kinds of scenarios of different personnel might deal with my phone – it’s Samsung S6 that I purchased less than a year in Poland. Although not my favorite, but I cherish my sim card in it & still felt an unnecessary loss.
The next two days, I tried to call baggage claim line, but no one picked up. (later I did find out they were extremely busy)
Nothing from facebook message either.
Others told me to forget about this. I already started thinking to get the new sim card once I go back.
Our return flight was Saturday early afternoon of the same week. On Friday morning, I was waiting on a con-call, so randomly checked my email. Saw one from Baggage Service, I thought they would tell me nothing was found. But to my surprise, the message read as “we have found your mobile phone that you left behind… you can come to our office to collect before your departure…” OMG again! They really located my phone! I quickly replied “you made my day, thanks so much.” An ordinary Friday suddenly felt rosy instantly!
Then I got my phone back on Saturday.
