We theoretically analyze the influence of absorption losses on a hollow waveguide with negative index cladding. The losses modify the waveguide dispersion relations; thereby it has a significant effect on the ability to stop the light. The negative index metamaterial cladding with reasonable absorption losses indicates that the losses render the light trapping difficult in such waveguides.
