On Wednesday I flew down to San Francisco on Virgin America. After picking up my bags I headed to the car rental place, picked up the car and proceeded to attach the windshield mount for my Nexus One which I use for GPS navigation.

One problem. I couldn't find the phone.

Damn! It must have dropped out of my bag in the overhead storage.

So I proceeded to call the airline's lost and found, who said that they'd check the plane and call me back. Did I say call me? Yup. Handily I had another cell phone with me (never underestimate the usefulness of traveling with two cellphones!). I also use Google Voice, which means that everyone can still call me as it routes to both cellphones.

A little later I got a call from Loon, an employee at the airport, who had found my cell on the airport transit. He said he'd hand it in to the airline and asked when I was flying back. I gave him the details and thanked my lucky stars - I must have stored up a Karma surplus.

Then this evening when I checked in for my flight, Virgin America had my cellphone waiting for me!

So thank you Loon, whoever you are, and the wonderful staff at Virgin America!
