You don't have ANYTHING back home? Like a bank account??

The money was stolen before the baggage was lost. They're two separate incidents.

So it wasn't stolen from your room, it was just lost by incompetent baggage handlers. Still sucks, but there's a chance it can be found, however slim.

This has been edited since I commented on it. The original post made it look like one incident.

True, there is no phrasing to specify that they are different, but unless OP was in a flying room and has no idea what the word "stolen" means, I think it's pretty safe to assume that they're separate events.

Or underwear?

If the airline cannot locate your luggage within 90 days, they are required to pay you a fee. I know this sounds bad, but at least you won't be broke.

He'll die if he got no money for 90 days, but luckily, he can get a job.

KaD6- That's true but he wouldn't be getting a job in a foreign country. The FML says the luggage was lost "When I landed back home," so they are in their own country.

Why in the world would you put all of your money in a checked bag???? It sucks your bag was lost but if it was everything you had, you should have had it on you.

Flip your underwear inside out. That’ll give you a day to sort things out

Why were you carrying all your money with you? Wouldn't it be better to have some money with you and some in the bank?

Did you have all of your belongings in your luggage? If not, then you still should have had all your other stuff that you didn’t pack when you got home. If so, WHY?
