If you leave something on board our aircraft, we recommend you go to the United Ap on your phone or fill out this form. Make sure you provide a detailed description of the lost item, including the brand, color, size and any distinguishing features. For example, if you’ve lost your laptop, provide the serial number for it.
After you submit the form, we’ll send you a confirmation email with a tracking number. We know you’ll be eager for answers, but we ask you don’t send a separate email.
If we find your lost item, we’ll send an email with simple instructions on how to get it back. We’ll also send an email if we can’t find your lost item within 30 days.
