How Do I File a Lost Baggage Claim with JetBlue Airlines?

Lost baggage doesn't have to feel like the end of the world, although it is understandable. You want your stuff back and having to replace it might get expensive. Filing a claim is easy and you can do so with a JetBlue crewmember while you are still at the airport or you can call JetBlue. As long as you file within four hours of landing, your claim can still be valid.
