According to this article British Airways lost nearly half a million bags this summer. One in every 53 bags went missing, a total of 444,492 bags. The figure puts BA in 25th place out of 29 airlines based on statistics on baggage delays. The figures which also show statistics for punctuality show that BA flights were also at least 15 minutes late taking off or landing. On delayed baggage BA fared worse that rivals Air France and Lufthansa but better than KLM and BMI who were the worst performer overall. Virgin Atlantic were among the best performing airlines.
