Heini Martin lost his camera on his seat (25F / Flight AB3423 / May 29, 2009) after arrival. The camera is a OLYMPUS u 820 (mju 820) and contains about 600 pictures of his Pilgrimage from Geneva to Santiago de Compostela.

Boy, that hurts to just read about much less experience. All those pictures...I guess this would require another Camino and new pictures along the way. The memories will be there and though the pictures may not be shared, the stories can be told and retold for generations.

I assume that he contacted the airline with no luck?

You never get anything back that you've lost on an airplane. Never. Lost a couple of things and once actually asked just after first setting foot in the terminal. No one saw anything.
Cameras - I had mine boosted in the Madrid Metro just before starting the Camino de Madrid. So the good news was that none of my pictures were lost...just had to spend $$ for another camera. My sympathies to the peregrino whose pictures are gone forever.
