Would you think that he could hold the airport liable?
No. Airports are there to stay in business though. Customer's getting ripped off is not something they want to be known for. It can seriously hurt their business. People will choose to avoid flying there. It is likely that the airport has video of the thief and hopefully he/she is caught.
hopefully they grabbed it thinking it was theirs and you'll have it back tonight.
that'd be nice - but no such luck thus far.
Police reports filed w/ serial #'s included.
In the meantime - keep an eye out for a 161 raygun w/ white weirdassed stickers, matching white k2 bindings... and while we're at it, that blue checker dakine low roler bag por favor.
I get the feeling that it's already long gone n never coming back tho...
Watching CL anyhow..
That sucks. Usually the airport will have video of everything. In Taiwan someone tried to walk off with my dad's laptop. They looked at the video and he had it back in 15 minutes. Some lady tried to steal it.
Just got in to board at Tahoe, and some jacked my board bag (bright blue plaid Dakine low roller) off the luggage rack before i could get to it.
If someone around reno/Tahoe sees a 2010/2011 Raygun 161 with an Austin Tricyclist sticker on it- report them/post back/whatever u can, im pretty sure im the only one thatd put that kinda sticker on a snowboard...
I used to live in Tahoe and have flown in and out of Reno dozens of times... I know the exact oversized bag area you're talking about and how it is literally right next to the exit doors, which most of the time are not manned by airport personnel.
The (kind of) good news? The airline is liable up to a certain amount, depending on what was in the bag. My buddy had his ski bag stolen in Washington, and the airline paid him in full for their value. Make sure you have a police report, everything is documented, and then make a claim with your flight provider.
