Thief from luggage inside aircraft

Please , I am a frequent traveler. On may 5 2022 My experience with Turkish airlines stealing from above storage. They stole my 2 iPhone , expensive ray ban glasses and money.

When I came home I was shocked to see the missing item. The airlines crew are very hospitable but they stole my stuff. I am the last person to accuse without being a victim. Beware next time. It is a big gang and organized.

Big Robbery by Turkish Airline

Plz never travel with Turkish Airline.We had the worst travel experience with them .Crew members were doing suspicious activities and when we were about to land in Istanbul I found out my lock from handbag was broken and my cash was missing when i asked for the help they did nothing and they took us to police station and even police wrote wrong report .With small children it was so painful I can’t even describe what I went through.When I was telling them what happened to me Crew member was shivering and at the same time another passenger came and reported that her 8000 dollars missing it was a bad situation still they didn’t help us because three members were involved so nobody helped us on the way back we bought new tickets because we were very scared and when we asked Turkish Airline to refund our tickets they didn’t do anything and also we begged them literally how bad was the experience in their flight with us and even another passenger was robbed but they didn’t care and still they have not done anything,whenever we think about this incident we feel helpless and frustrated .We don’t know who will give us justice.Plz help us if anybody can .

Organised theft on Turkish Airline

My 80 year old Dad was a victim of an organised theft whilst travelling from Karachi to Chicago on a Turkish Airline flight.He was carrying 10,000 US dollars as $100 notes in two different envelopes in the inside pocket of his blazer.Whilst he fell asleep on the flight some one took the envelopes out and swapped the $100 notes with $1 notes and replaced the envelopes.
He found out what had happened after he got off the flight in Chicago.
This is a very organised theft and one that has happened before as well but nothing has been done to stop it or warn the customers.
The criminals are getting away with it and so is the airline.

Stolen money

Turkish airline stole $2700 (100 cut) from my handbag and subtituted them with $270 single dollar bills on yhe flight from instanbul to Pekin. They have a organized threft network which is criminal. Complained to the airport police and turkish airline but they are unresponsive and told me I could not prove that I had all that money with me. I am sure I can prove the theft if they provided the police with cameras but they say they don't record. SHAMEFUL!
