I did not receive all my bags at the arrival, What to Do?
Arrived at your destination airport and found that some of your baggage is missing? Well, there is no need to panic. You are not alone as this happens with other passengers as well. Although it’s not a common occurrence with United Airlines but when it does happen, the airline has various ways for you to reach out to United Airlines Customer Service to inform them.
United puts a lot of care and effort into making flying a pleasant experience for every single passenger. Therefore, they have created several channels for you to communicate with them. This blog will cover how you can work together with the airlines in solving your baggage issue.
Time is of the essence with reporting baggage issues
When you have found that you have not received full baggage upon your arrival, it is essential to inform United within a particular period. Once the time limit is up United will not be able to look further and compensate you for your loss.
Let’s try to understand this further. Your location at which you found the issue matters here. If you are at the destination airport you should go immediately to the Baggage Service Office and inform them.
If you have left the airport, you need to report the issue to the Baggage Office Office at your destination airport within 24 hours of your arrival. This time limit is for Us, Puerto Rico, and the U.S Virgin Islands.
If you took an international flight then the time limit to report the issue is extended to 7 Days within your arrival. If your bag is delayed then you can report it with 21 days of your arrival. You can contact the United Airlines Customer Service Number for more information.
What should be your next step after reporting the issue with your bag?
As soon as you found an issue with your bag, you reported the issue to the concerned authorities. Now what? Let’s discuss
The searching process will begin as soon as the airlines receive your report. You will be given a receipt that has your baggage file reference number. Keep it safe with you. While the airline is working you can update from various platforms.
How will the airline keep you updated?
Once the report is filed, United will send text messages and e-mails on the number and email id you provided in the form.
