Band 7 Letter, Last Wednesday you flew

Dear Sir or Madam,
I would like to report lost property. It seems that I left my hand luggage on one of your flights. Last Saturday, June 06th, I flew from Delhi, India to Boston, the USA through Air India flight (Flight number: US108) and I traveled with my hand luggage with me. I had put it in the overhead bin.

Unfortunately, after the long flight, I must have forgotten it on the plane.
It’s blue hand luggage on wheels. It has one outside pocket and one sticker with my name on it. It is locked with a small lock. I have all of my personal documents and some magazines in it. I had just received it as a gift from my father in India on my birthday.

As you can imagine, that bag is very important to me. I request you to please check with the staff who were working on the same flight and let me know if you get any details about my hand luggage. Here is my email id:; you can reach out to me on this if in case, I am not reachable on my cell phone.

I’m looking forward to your reply.

Many thanks,

Bharat S Anjna
