Contact apple support to see what can be done (tracking, wiping the device, setting a message to come up when turned on, etc). They'll walk you through any possibilities.

Fill out the airline form with detailed info (serial number, screensaver, seat number, flight info etc). The more detailed, the more seriously they take it.

I did this with a band new iPad Air. Guess what? The airline called me over two months later and said it just took that long to get through the system. Nobody ever turned it on. When I powered up, I received my location notification and on screen message just like I should.

I guess your luck wasn't as good... Sorry

Well that's the thing about nightmares, isn't it? The worst ones claim a special place in the memories we'd like to forget. That poor guy lived out one for us...

I recently left my ipad on a bus. Lo and behold, we called the bus station and hour later, and they had it. Little miracle.
