Luke Potgieter boarded a S.A.A. flight on Sunday 11 Jan to George - flight left Cape Town at 12.15. Whilst on the plane he was told their was no place for his hand luggage. The steward on board took his hand luggage and placed it in a storage room at the back of the plane.
On arrival in George, he discovered his cellphone had been taken from his hand luggage whilst ON THE PLANE.
Usually one keeps all ones valuables in your hand luggage because of theft which occurs in luggage put in the hold of the plane, but to have it stolen by a staff member on the plane is really poor.
