Brad Tilden, the CEO of Alaska Airlines told participants of the Aviation Forum in Washington that the airline has lost his luggage.
“To all the representatives of media in here, I hope you wouldn’t write about it”, - he said, smiling.
Tilden received his suitcase on the next day. He told that this is the second time that he is experiencing such a problem. The first time Alaska Airlines lost the luggage of its future CEO 25 years ago.
The airline is known for offering its passengers with a discount of $ 25 on the purchase of new tickets or adding 2500 miles to its bonus program if the luggage is not taken to the baggage carousel within 20 minutes upon the arrival.
