There and back. Feels like it was longer than it actually was.

So. The story of my luggage.

I get to the airport on Thursday and check in, Everything is going well. We get on the plane and sit there for a bit and then.... It seems the plane was broken and we were going to have to rebook everything. I tried to do that but the only thing they could get me would get me into Marquette very late Friday/early Saturday. Since the service was Saturday morning, I didn't think that was acceptable to me. I got rebooked through to Duluth since that'd the closest they can get me.

Still, that's a 4 hour drive. Thanks to my parents for coming to pick me up. I realized later that it might ahve been faster had they come to get me in Minneapolis but, well, hindsight and all of that.

So, I get to Duluth. Hooray. My luggage does not make it there with me - it went on to Detroit, even though I didn't. It makes it to Duluth on the next day. I ask that they send the luggage to Marquette so someone can drive it out to me. (It seems they can't drive it from Duluth to me for whatever reason.) The luggage gets to Detroit, or so I'm told, and then never seems to make it from Detroit anywhere else.

I got my baggage fee returned to me, or well, a voucher for the amount and 1000 Sky Miles. So, they've tried to do something about this but I had to wear the same clothes for most of a week and didn't have the dress I wanted to wear at the funeral.

So, y'know, thanks for trying Delta but man, did you just not make it.

I'll see if I can talk about the funeral later.

Right now, little things set me off, so... maybe later. We'll see.

We're flying Delta to Amsterdam. I'll pack my carry-on appropriately.

Delta/KLM.

Yeah. Even though we're going direct and there are no crazy complications, I'm packing at least a change of clothing into every carry-on I ever bring again.

KLM? HUZZAH!

Been doing that since London.

The 50% success rate for same-day luggage coming home from Comic-con has been only mildly annoying, by comparison.

Yeah. We'll see who is actually running the show but it wouldn't surprise me if it is actually KLM. (I really, really hope so.) I started packing essentials into the carry on but not full sets of clothing. That'll change.

I don't mind so much when it is coming home. And sometimes, it is understandable. If /I/ have to run to make the plane, my luggage has no chance in hell.
