Summary

You have been asked to return a dropped item to its rightful owner. The passenger should be on the next Airship flight.

Walkthrough

Passing through Customs you run into Eddy who says he found something that was dropped by a passenger on the Airship and asks you return it.

  • If you agree, he shows you a picture of the passenger and asks you to make sure you've memorized the picture.

Once you board the Airship and it takes off:

  • You will find several passengers on the ship all wearing similar, but not exactly the same attire.
  • When you talk to the one you think it is, you are given the option of returning the item.
  • If you find the right one, he thanks you and gives you 500G reward.

You can also start this quest from the Airship Port in Bastok, Windurst, and Kazham.

Thats because you can only have 1 of the quests activated, say if you have kazham one activated, you wont be able to do another one until you get rid of the dropped item. To get rid of it you talk to the NPC who gave it to you and he will take it back.

Try to visit all 4 NPC involved in this quest, in each 4 port. You'll find the NPC who will take back the item, and you'll be able to ask the quest again.
Confirmed!

The title "Very Discerning Individual" can be gotten by discerning one citizen of every race.
I think "Extremely Discerning Individual" comes from discerning each face type, but I'm not sure.

I know this because I did many, many non-taru versions of this. (Taru equipment is small!) Finally I succeeded on a taru one and got "Very Discerning."

Leaving San d'Oria, I accepted this mission, but I had to leave my seat for a bit to take care of something. I still have the "Dropped Item" in my key items and it will not let me do the quest again. None of the 4 NPCs respond to me with the quest. :( Anyone ever have this happen to them before?

That's sort of odd, I had the same thing happen to me, but when I went back to Kazham and talked to the person who gives you the quest, he took the item from me and said he was going to turn it over to the airship authority or something. I got a new item and description right afterwords. Try to talk to the person who gives you the quest again, and it should work...

You get the airship pass by either:

1. Paying 500,000 gil

2. Get the 3 keys (monster drops) at Ft. Ghelsba, Palborough Mines, and Giddeus. So get ready to travel...

You're thinking of the Kazham airship pass, good luck getting on the Sandy-Jeuno airship with that. btw, it's 150k for the kazham pass, not 500k.

You need to attain rank 5 to get an airship pass (windy-jeuno,bastok-jeuno,sandy-jeuno) *or* you could be a moron and pay 500k, when you're gonna wish that you just got rank 5.

But, if you have, for some reason, bought the airship pass before rank 5, you get an extra 20k gil from the archduke, at least I'm pretty sure it was 20k.

actually, it's 120k to buy the kazham airship pass, I believe
Another way

Combine this one with the 1k transport from sandy to jeuno quest, and you get around 1500 per trip. Not bad for the wait.

Oh, by the way... I should probably mention the tenshido one *sandy to jeuno* can get you caught and arrested, and have your airship pass revoked for a little while... If you plan on being in jeuno for a day or two, it wont hurt you... Just dont expect a quick way back ;)

The only thing is that you have one shot at it at a time. Right?

Ive done this one before, you get more than one shot. You have to go back to the airship you were at to get the quest. Same as the khazam one. It just gives you a different model to look for, thats all.

you can't ride the airship at lvl 1 can you? shouldn't they change the lvl restriction?

actually you could ride the airship at lvl 1. The only requirement for riding the airship is an airship pass.

The title this quest gives is "A Discerning Individual"

However after you do it so many times you get the title "A very discerning individual"

I have seen both, and I currently have the very discerning title. Also does this quest give fame in the city that you do it in? If it does, then it must not give much because I have done this countless times in all three cities.

Just as a note..
I've done this quest lots and lots on various ariships, and i've gotten "very discerning individual"

Now it appears i've done it so much that my title shows up as "Extremely discerning individual"

This is a good way to make 300G every time you ride the airship.
