Travel Tip of the Day: Always Doublecheck Your Seat and Seatback Pocket

Pocket-610x405Always Doublecheck Your Seat and Seatback Pocket
CNN recently did an investigative report that featured an alarming interview with a former airline worker. The worker talks about how some airplane cleaning crews rush onto planes to see who can find valuables left behind to pocket them, instead of bringing them to the lost and found. As the article states (read it here), “The best advice to passengers is the most obvious. When flight attendants tell you to check your seatback and collect all your items before leaving the plane, do it. Because in a matter of seconds, that iPad you left behind might already be gone.”
