    What counts as lost? Truly lost, or merely a lost baggage claim (which likely includes a lot of misconnects)?

    The statistic is "reports of lost bags", so presumably many are later found. Nonetheless the cost to handle this must be massive.

    I was surprised to see UA performing much better than AA. I assumed it would be the other way around.

    If you read the rest of the story

    Would love some comparison of lost baggage on non US airlines.

    The rates for UA and AA are about the same to within 1%. A couple of decent storms affecting one airline more than other could make that much difference.
