You travelled by plane last week and your suitcase was lost. You have still heard nothing from the airline company.

You should write at least 150 words.
This is an answer written by a candidate who achieved a Band 7 score. Here is the examiner’s comment:
The response is relevant and fairly fluent, although some aspects of the task could be more fully developed. The message is well organised and can be followed throughout. A fairly good range of vocabulary and structure is used, although occasional spelling errors and faulty word choice detract slightly from the overall fluency.
I was one of the passengers who took the flight from Narita (Tokyo) to Heathrow (London) on 5 August. Unfortunately, my suitcase did not come out after the flight. Although I have explained this Mr. McDonald who was in charge at the Luggage Claim Office I have not heard from him as of now.
My suit case is grey Samsonite whose size is 10 x 95 cm. There are 3 steckers on one side and 1 heart shaped stecker on the other side. My initials “AR” are also written on both sides.
There are a few books and a copy of my thesis in that suitcase, which I need for the conference on 19 August.
So I would deeply appreciate it if you could give me a prompt reply at your most convenient. My flight number, luggage claim number and address are written below.
Flight No : NH 101
Luggage Claim No : 00026
Address : 6H Silver Street
