Sample Letter 1

Dear Sir or Madam,


I am writing to report a cabin-sized luggage inadvertently left on Flight 224 from Singapore to London, seeking your help in its retrieval.


The bag in question is a wine-red roller suitcase with distinct features, including multiple stickers resembling immigration stamps on its surfaces and a slightly loose castor. Unfortunately, this bag was forgotten in the overhead compartment above seat 12A, which I occupied during my flight last week. The oversight occurred likely due to fatigue from the lengthy, 16-hour journey.


Inside the suitcase, you will find several personal items crucial to my daily activities and work engagements. These include a few articles of clothing, two books which are essential for my ongoing research, and a collapsible umbrella that is particularly valuable to me, given the unpredictable weather conditions in London.


I kindly request your assistance in locating and returning my luggage. Due to a tight schedule filled with business meetings, I am unable to visit the lost-and-found center personally. If the suitcase has been found, could you please contact me on my mobile at 1234 5678? Additionally, arranging delivery to the Ruby Hotel in central London, where I am staying, would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you for your attention to this matter and for any assistance you can provide.


Yours faithfully,


Jane Doe

Sample Letter 2


Dear Sir or Madam,


I am writing to request your assistance in recovering a piece of luggage that was unfortunately left on Flight 224 from Singapore to London.


The item in question is a cabin-sized, wine-red roller suitcase. It lacks a luggage tag but is easily recognizable by its unique features: multiple stickers that resemble immigration stamps on both sides and a slightly loose castor. This bag was stored in the overhead compartment above seat 12A, which I occupied during the journey.


Contained within the suitcase are several personal items critical to my visit in London. These include a selection of clothing appropriate for business meetings, two books crucial for my research, and a collapsible umbrella, essential given London's unpredictable weather. The loss of these items has caused considerable inconvenience.


Given my current engagements and continuous meetings, visiting your lost-and-found office in person is not feasible for me. Therefore, I kindly request that should my luggage be located, please contact me at your earliest convenience at 1234 5678. I would greatly appreciate if arrangements could be made for the suitcase to be delivered to my current accommodation, the Ruby Hotel in central London.


I trust in your cooperation and thank you in advance for your assistance in this matter.


Yours faithfully,


Jane Doe

Sample Letter 3


Dear Sir or Madam,


I hope this email finds you well. I am writing in regard to a lost bag on a flight with your airline. 


I was flying from Singapore to London last week on Flight 224 on a business trip. I only had cabin luggage with me, and I stored it in the overhead compartment above my seat. My seat number was 12A. It was a 16 hrs flight and when I arrived in London, I was very much jet lagged and I forgot to take it with me when I disembarked from the plane. I didn't realize it until I reached to my hotel.


My bag is a cabin-sized roller luggage in wine red and has no luggage tag on it. However, it has multiple stickers that look like immigration stamps on both sides, and one of the castors is slightly loose. I have packed a few clothing items, two books and a collapsible umbrella in it.


I would like to request your assistance in finding the luggage. The reason for asking is because I am very much occupied due to work obligations and unable to visit the lost-and-found centre myself. If you have found it, kindly reach out to me at my mobile 1234 5678 and help to arrange a delivery to the hotel concierge. I am staying at the Ruby Hotel in central London.


Thank you for your assistance. 


Yours faithfully,


Jane Doe
