The Head of Alaska Airlines, Brad Tilden, confessed to the participants of an airline gathering in Washington, D.C., that the air company had lost his baggage.
“The media is here and I'm hoping that you don't write this down and print it”, he said with a smile.
The bag was delivered to Tilden the next day. According to him, that was his second experience. The first time Alaska Airlines lost the baggage of its future CEO was 25 years ago.
The airline is known for awarding a $25 discount for the purchase of new tickets or replenishing the account of the passenger in a bonus programme with 2,500 miles if the baggage is not on the carousel within 20 minutes of the plane’s arrival.
