I guess when an airline charges you hundreds of dollars in checked bag fees, they're more motivated to keep an eye on your suitcases.

According to a new study, out of all the major airlines in the United States, Spirit does the best job at not losing people's bags. They tied with Delta for the lowest lost luggage rate over the past five years.

The airlines that lose the most luggage are the smaller regional carriers. Envoy Air, which used to be American Eagle, is the worst followed by ExpressJet and SkyWest.

Believe it or not, the rate of lost bags has gone down 27% overall since 2012. So right now, only about two or three people out of 1,000 will have the airlines lose or damage their bag.
