In such a case, a copy goes to the Airport Authorities and another to the Airlines Authorities. In rare cases when this does not suffice, a copy of the complaint is also tendered to the Police officials on duty/area Police Station.
The Floor Manager, Airports Authority of India,
I am a passenger of Air India flight No. ________ enroute Toronto to New Delhi via Cairo. I boarded the flight at its starting destination i.e. Toronto.
I waited at the baggage collection belt for three hours but to no avail. My bags did not show up. Therefore I request you to trace my baggage and inform me at the earliest. There seems to have been a mistake at Cairo Airport or New Delhi Airport. Attached is a copy of my ticket along with that of my wife.
I shall be deeply grateful if you initiate the search and trace my baggage at the earliest.
