Airline Passengers Left $400,000 Worth Of Change Behind In 2010

The Transportation Security Administration reports that airline passengers left behind around $400,000 in coins in 2010. The TSA says the coin leakage adds up to $409,085.56, which includes $32,605.17 in foreign currency. The most change-heavy airports include John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, Los Angeles International, Hartsfield Atlanta International, San Francisco International and Miami International. The TSA says they do try to reunite passengers with their goods at the checkpoint, but it might be hard to track down everyone who left a pile of coins. The money that’s left behind is used to finance agency operations.
