A Welcome Site-Airports Lost and Found

If you ever lost anything while traveling, you know how frustrating the whole process of filing a claim, and ever hoping you'll receive your lost property back. In an era where we travel with smartphones, tablets, laptops, headphones and USB drives, losing any of those can be emotionally catastrophic unless you work for Apple or Google and lose a prototype which would be career ending.

A new web site and service called Airport Lost and Found works to help you recover what you lost, by streamlining the process and linking the airlines and airports together with you.

It's a brilliant idea, that can only get better once they tie in rail, commuter rail and bus, car rental and cruiseship lines to the whole model. It's the kind of service that easily American Express or Carlson Wagonlit would bundle into their business platforms so business travelers as well as those booking with Expedia or PriceLine would also want to have as an add on service. I can see this working with even Tripit as the data could easily be populated and moved over. Of course, an RFID tag on your gear would also help, sort of like the tags one puts on their pets, or the chips now available for them.
