    I did this already - sorry I should have mentioned that. Seniors Australia (ACE Insurance) wouldn't talk to me until I had authorisation from my father. They will ring him when it is morning there.

    Elderly father has arrived in Schipol Amsterdam and no suitcase

    I know he filled out loads of forms and mentioned 'Lost Baggage Desk'? Not sure if he went to US Airways? I will check with him when I speak to him soon and see if he has a lost baggage tracking number etc. Thanks for the links I'll check them out.
