Allegiant Airlines has the fewest mishandled baggage: just 1,92 out of 1000 in 2021.

One international airline is leading the pack when it comes to luggage damage, according to new research from British manufacturer Trifibre. Data from the Civil Aviation Authority showed that out of 823 reported broken baggage between 2015 and 2020, Ryanair responsible for more than 1 in 10.

Ryanair's 108 claims over a five-year period means 13% of the baggage the airline handles is damaged. From 2015 to 2020 Emirates there were 47 claims, due to mishandling of 6% of luggage on board. Closes the top three Alitalia with 40 claims (5% of all processed baggage).

While we can only hope the inevitable doesn't happen, here's what you need to know if your luggage is damaged in flight. According to LuggageHero, the best thing to do if your baggage is damaged is to contact the airline immediately, preferably before leaving the airport. Photographing the damage will also help when filing a claim. The site also recommends keeping a log of all communications, as it is likely that passengers will be talking to multiple representatives.

Travelers in the United States should also be aware that there are Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations according to which airlines have to pay for incorrectly delivered baggage. DOT states that “for domestic flights, the rules allow airlines to limit their liability for lost, damaged or delayed luggage. Airlines may pay more than the limit, but are not required to do so. The regulation is $3800.

As travel picks up again, passengers can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that there is still less than a 1% chance of problems with checked baggage.
