Man uses Apple AirTags, PowerPoint presentation to recover his lost luggage

One man lost his luggage on a trip to the UK for a wedding. He used AirTags , a PowerPoint presentation , and an AirTags to request his bag. Elliot Sharod was flying from South Africa to the UK with his wife Helen. They were married in April 17th. They bought tickets that included stopovers at Abu Dhabi or Frankfurt. However, the pandemic forced them to change their flight plans.

CNN reports that they rescheduled the flight and went straight to the UK. They arrived in the UK to discover that their luggage had not been delivered. They were flying in Are Lingus airlines.

Sharod placed an AirTag in each bag so that they could be easily found. They discovered their bags were in Frankfurt, but not on the London-bound flight.

Aer Lingus was the airline that operated the flight and said the bags would be delivered at Sharod’s residence. Only two out of three bags arrived. Sharod had reached out multiple times to the airline informing them of the missing bag, but no reply. He quickly posted video and shared a PowerPoint file with screenshots of the Find My App showing where his bag was located.

Elliot Sharod stated in a video that his bag was lost at random. Sharod pointed out that the lost bag was at an unspecified location, not an Aer Lingus address or the courier’s choice.

They believe the item has been taken by someone else and reported this to police.

Apple announced recent updates to AirTags in an effort to reduce unwanted tracking. This allows users to track personal items such as keys, purses, backpacks, bags, and other small objects through the Find My App.

According to the company, it plans to soon update both AirTags as well as Find My, starting with privacy alerts and documentation.
