Your ONLY path here is to ask the company you travelled with. They'll be the only one with his details, IF you booked under your names for the trip. Even then, they likely won't give you his name for privacy reasons. However, if you impress upon them the gravity of the situation, they might be prepared to contact him on your behalf and see if he's ...

Did you get some sort of receipt? Do you know exactly which kind of "security" official confiscated your item? If not, you'll have a very hard time proving anything even happened, although you can try your luck with the airport's complaints line at +86-10-96158. In any case, the airline is not responsible. Security rules are laid out by the Civil ...

Contact the coach company: the man you lent the book to might have handed it in as lost property at the end of his journey. It's unlikely that they'll be willing to give you his details because that would be a violation of his privacy. Would they even know who he was? Do they have your details, for example?

Your ability to be compensated depends a bit on the situation, in particular were there other passengers 'abandoned' or was it just you and your wife?

But if it was just the two of you, Iberia will be able to claim that others reboarded and ...

Try putting a personal ad in local newspapers that are sold in the towns of origin and destination for your journey. Maybe you could include TinyURL links (or equivalent) to your Facebook and LinkedIn pages. It's a long shot, but it may be worth trying if the paper is important enough.

As for liability, everything depends on what jurisdiction you'll be able to work. If it will be the European (continental - based on Napoleonic Code) law, then you're liable for every damage you have caused, and the factor of 'recklessness' or 'guilt' is unimportant. So the question will arise, who have caused the damage to the laptop, which is not obvious. ...

I experienced similar things happening to me while I was traveling in China. In both of my cases, the security guard and hotel manager both asked for cash to make some unpleasant circumstances, which they had created, go away. While you're looking for a bureaucratic solution, a bribe might have done the trick. From the comments, "on the spot fine" seems ...

as Ivan said did you book both flights together because as specified in an other post and also on this website if it is not the case then it becomes your problem and you won't have any right to pretend to any kind of compensation: My connecting flights were booked separately. If my first flight is cancelled am I entitled to a refund for my other ...
