With summer travelling season upon us, it might be smart to reconsider letting these airlines handle your luggage.

The Huffington Post published a list of the airlines that lose the most luggage, according to the Office of Aviation Enforcement and Proceedings at the U.S. Department of Transportation, and found that the biggest offenders were Southwest, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, and United Airlines.

According to the data, Southwest is the worst at losing luggage; 329,599 bags went missing in 2014 and 439,323 were gone in 2013. American Airlines followed with 158,663 lost bags in 2014 and 34,029 already this year. Delta has 16,340 lost bags logged for 2016 so far while United Airlines has 15,931.
