My mom recently returned from a trip to France and the airline (Brussels Air & Eurowings) lost her luggage. She filled out paperwork at the SLC airport when she arrived, but they didn’t give her a “reference number”. She drove home thinking the luggage would arrive soon thereafter. It’s been over ten days and still no luggage. Every time she calls or emails Brussels, Eurowings, etc. they won’t give her any information because she doesn’t have a reference number.
She lives hundreds of miles away from the airport, so coming in-person isn’t exactly practical. I went to the SLC airport and met several Eurowings representatives. They all said they don’t have access to the luggage database so they gave me a phone number for the manager that supposedly does have access. The manager hasn’t responded with the reference number and I have no idea where to go from here.
Anyone know what the best action to take might be to get her luggage back (or at least get compensated)? Thanks in advance!
