    Off topic but not sure about other airports but Sydney airport keep all their unclaimed lost property and do an auction once a year, then they donate all proceeds to a nominated charity.

    They just recently did their annual auction and some of the stuff was hilarious. A microwave. Seriously. How does one misplace a microwave at an airport?

    I'm not sure what you want any of us to say, you have someone else's property. Do with it what you would want someone to do with your property if you had lost some.

    Perh airport has a similar policy. But if items are actually left on an aircraft it's supposed to be handed into the airline who deal with it. Not sure what they would do.

    I would have handed it to the airline directly.

    Even if the lost and found goes to charity once a month surely that's better than staff taking things home and keeping them for themselves?

    Not sure how I feel about that to be honest, sorry
    Well I know how I feel about it - it's unprofessional, it's essentially theft. Return the I pod (dump it in lost and found with a note saying where it was found) before someone finds out (security footage etc) and your hubby gets in trouble from his employer.

    IME ipods are owned by kids. Since the OP has been deleted I'm unsure if the owner is known but if my kids left their ipod on a plane and it never turned up in lost property they would be gutted.

    Please have your DH put it in lost property.

    It goes to lost property no question.
    If your DH wants it, he can buy it when it's auctioned for charity. IMO it's that simple.
