Model Answer 1:
I am writing this letter with regard to my lost bag on the plane. Last week I flew from New York to London. When I reached the hotel room, I realised that I had left my bag on the plane.
When I entered on the plane I kept it under my seat as all the overhead bins were filled with bags. When I got left in London I forget to take my bag. I left it under my seat. It is a black leather bag, of medium size. It has two pockets in the front and one small pocket in the back. It is a really soft and beautiful bag. Also, it has a silver colour zip and key chain on it.

Model Answer 2:
Respected Sir/ Madam,
I am, Sharon Mond, writing this letter regarding a bag that I left on one of your planes last week. On Monday 24th July I came to London on flight FRC - 2547-A from Sydney. According to my ticket, my seat number was D-5A. The plane arrived 2 hours late at mid-night and I was worried and tired. I spelt for half an hour and as a result, when I returned home, I suddenly realised that I had left my bag on the plane under the seat in front of me! I felt pretty stupid about the mistake I made.
My bag is small in size and is made of brown leather with a zip opening the top. Inside the bag, there is a credit card, debit card, a book that I was reading titled 'War and Peace' by Leo Tolstoy, some car keys, my mobile phone and some important business documents.
I, therefore, request you to have your lost property department check and see if they have my bag and contact me as soon as possible to let me know whether they have found my bag or not?
Thanking you in advance for your kind help, I look forward to hearing from you soon.
