AirTag followed lost wallet to 35 cities on American Airlines

When the airline claimed it couldn’t find the lost item, an American Airlines passenger who forgot his wallet on a flight claims his Apple AirTag looked to have done so.

Customer John Lewis, of Ferguson, Missouri, tweeted about the incident in an effort to retrieve his wallet, which he claimed to have left behind while rushing to catch a flight after his first part of the trip was delayed.

“The absurd thing is that even though I’ve called and texted American Airlines, they claim to have lost my wallet. The weirder aspect is that my wallet does have an AirTag, allowing me to track it when it’s on a flight and through more than 35 destinations since Tuesday.”

The airline’s reaction to Lewis was that a crew had “thoroughly cleaned the plane” and no wallets had been discovered, the passenger claims.

How can you fully clean a jet if the wallet is still on the plane and you haven’t yet received it, I hear you ask. “And they say they thoroughly cleaned the plane. In a video that was uploaded to Twitter, Lewis remarked. He accepted responsibility for losing his wallet but said that as a “platinum member,” he was entitled to better customer service. Even still, he wondered whether his journey with his wallet would result in additional miles.

He calculated that he had tracked the journey of his wallet, or at least the AirTag he had hidden within over 100,000 miles. He informed his followers of the whereabouts of his wallet on January 30 after the airline said it had found the AirTag, which had been taken out of the wallet.

The wallet wasn’t recovered, he stated; instead, only the AirTag was. That indicates that the cleaning crew claims to have done such an excellent job of cleaning that someone from the crew simply grabbed the wallet and left the AirTag.

He claimed to have heard that the AirTag was discovered hidden behind a chair. It’s likely that the wallet did not actually travel as far as he had predicted, and that just the AirTag accrued miles in the air.
