Any baggage that is left behind and not claimed in time will be auctioned off. Losing your baggage is the worst thing that can happen when you are traveling. The good thing is that passengers usually get their baggage in a couple of days when they react quickly.

One thing not to do is not deal with the situation in time, as it can result in your baggage being gone forever. Flight attendants recommend contacting the airline you are flying with the second your baggage is lost as it is better to find it as quickly as possible.
