Didsy me did the unthinkable and left my iPad in the seat pocket of my EasyJet flight into Gatwick. Realised soon as I was off the gangway but they would not let me back on the plane. Security and all that. Reported it immediately to baggage agent but simply told to fill in a form. Cleared customs and went straight to Sales Desk. Told to wait an hour or so while they turned the plane around but nothing was handed in. Went home dejected. Next day I received an email informing me my iPad had been located and arranged to get it returned to me. iPad and me reunited today. Result! I know I am extremely lucky but if the same was to happen to you persevere and report it missing immediately.
