My husband and I will be flying this summer for the first time ever and another thread has me asking this question: has the airport ever lost your luggage? Do you ever get it back or does it just get swallowed up by a black hole? Is there no compensation? It just seems INSANE to not be able to keep up with the luggage - I'm not saying it is the easiest thing to do with all the transitions and such, but it's not rocket science either. So, has it happened to YOU?
