    All your pilpuling aside, the answer is obvious: call the airline and tell them you have the missing suitcase that they’ve been looking all over for, and let them come and pick it up, and deliver it to its owner. In the meantime, report that your suitcase is lost, and they probably have it in a warehouse somewhere.

    Practial questions:

    What happens when you take the wrong coat from shul?

    Worse, when there is only one coat left on the rack, and it isn’t yours – and it is really freezing outside, can you “borrow” the coat that was left behind (by the guy who took your coat)?
