Best and Worst Airlines for Lost Luggage: Skywest

John Coe Gibbs

No. 13 SkyWest

Second largest of the regional carriers, Utah-based SkyWest operates short-haul and commuter flights to more than 150 U.S. cities for five larger airlines. And therein lies the major problem when it comes to luggage: transferring bags at so many terminals between six different airline entities including several with chronic mishandling records.  

Baggage Reports per 1,000 Passengers: 5.26

Total Baggage Reports: 135,863

Enplaned Passengers: 25.83 million

Baggage Fees: $20–$25 for first checked bag
