'Big Time Rush' Star

Airline Lost $7,000

Worth of Gifts for Fans

EXCLUSIVE

0517-kendall-schmidt-gettyKendall Schmidt from "Big Time Rush" tried to do a nice thing for his fans in Europe ... but says he got screwed when the airlines lost his bag, and thousands of dollars worth of jewelry.

Schmidt -- BTR's lead singer on the TV show, and in the band -- is currently performing with his other band, Heffron Drive, on a European tour ... and wanted to give his fans some custom-made necklaces and bracelets.

According to our sources, Schmidt was flying from Orlando to Austria when the bag filled with the jewelry went missing.

We're told the luggage eventually resurfaced in Berlin, but the $7,000 worth of goodies had disappeared. We're told Schmidt filed a report with the airline ... in hopes of getting a cash reimbursement.

At least Schmidt was able to joke about it during his show in Vienna.

man oh man - some guys are just DUMB. Who puts 7K worth of jewelry into a checked bag that you're not allowed to lock? I smell a fraudulent insurance claim.

"Lost" hahaha. Check the baggage handlers, can guarantee 100% that they stole it all, it's gotten to be so common that no one believes that things just get "lost" anymore. Especially when the bag turns up later with all valuables missing.

Nothing goes missing on the airlines. It goes on the net or the swap meet to be sold.

Kendall is an amazing person. Not everyone does this for their fans. I love him so much. I hope Heffron Drive gets as famous as Big Time Rush. They deserve it. thank you Kendall and Dustin!
