Also, we dive into how !

The Basics of the JetBlue Lost Baggage Policy

The first thing you should do if you misplace one or more of your bags on a JetBlue flight is to report the lost item.

You can do this in two ways:

  1. With the JetBlue staff member while at the airport
  2. Via an online form

If your bags have been lost or damaged, file a report with a JetBlue crew member while you’re at the airport.

Alternatively, you can submit a Lost Item Report via the online form on the website.

To help JetBlue's lost and found department recover your item quickly, you first need to let them know if your item was checked in.

If your bag was checked in, you should contact the local JetBlue Baggage Service Office in the airport baggage claim area or at the ticket counter.

In case you lost an unchecked item, make sure you provide the following details:

  • Item category and subcategory
  • Date you lost the item
  • Detailed description of the item

Make sure you file your Lost Item Report within 14 days of losing your luggage so that JetBlue has a better chance of recovering an item if you report it early.
