The passenger realised that he lost his phone after waking up from his nap. Though his Bluetooth earphones were connected, the mobile was missing. Along with his friend, the flight captain, and 3 crew members, everyone searched the flight but did not find it. Unfortunately, they had to leave within 5 minutes due to security reasons.

They soon contacted Akasa Air baggage services staff at the airport and were asked to provide proof of the iPhone being present on that flight. Later, they provided the necessary evidence and attached a screenshot of the mobile’s last location on the flight.

The good news is that Akasa Air staff has found the iPhone 14.
