AirTags and a PowerPoint presentation helped a man who lost his luggage on a wedding trip get his things back from the airline. Elliot Sharod and his new wife Helen flew back to the UK from South Africa on April 17.

They got married there on April 17. Because of the virus, they had to change their flight plans. They bought tickets that made stops in Abu Dhabi and Frankfurt.

According to CNN, they changed their flight and flew straight to the United Kingdom. However, they found that their luggage had not been there when they arrived in the United Kingdom. Irish airline Are Lingus took the couple to and from their trip.

Fortunately, Sharod had placed an AirTag inside each bag, allowing him to locate them quickly. They used the Find My App to find out that their luggage had arrived in Frankfurt, but it had not been put on a flight to London as they had hoped.

It would be sent to Sharod’s home address, says Aer Lingus, the airline in charge of the trip. However, only two of the three bags were sent. Sharod tried to call the airline to tell them about the missing suitcase, but they didn’t answer. Video clips and PowerPoint slides with the Find My app screenshots show where his bag is. Soon after, he did the same thing.

Elliot Sharod said in a short video that one of his lost suitcases was in an unknown place. Sharod said that the location where his suitcase went missing is not an Aer Lingus location or the location of your (Aer Lingus) courier of choice. Sharod said that he had told the airline about his concern about the whereabouts of his suitcase, which he can track in real-time with Apple’s AirTag app.

The pair thinks it was stolen and has reported it to the police.

Apple recently made significant changes to AirTags, which lets people track things like keys, wallets, purses, backpacks, luggage, and more through the Find My app.

AirTags and the Find My network will be getting a lot of new things soon, according to the company. The first thing will be new privacy warnings, alerts, and documentation.
