If your checked baggage is damaged during a flight you must report it right away. Do not leave the airport without notifying a representative from the airline.
[PICS: Lost luggage]
Most airlines require reports must be made at the airport in person. Every airline has its own policy you must adhere to.
Here are a few things airlines will not cover if damage occurs:
- Damage to Wheels
- Over-packing of the bag
- Fragile or perishable items
- Loss of external locks
- Pull or security straps
- Manufacturer's defects
