Feb 23, 2018 at 20:56 comment added GalacticCowboy Out of the dozens of flights I've taken in my life (no idea specifically how many...) both internationally and within the USA, I have only had "lost" baggage twice. Once was because there was a line of thunderstorms that ended up causing a bunch of cancelled flights and the one I eventually arrived on was not at all the one I had originally booked. My bag was delivered the following day. The other, my bags took the direct flight while I did not. They were waiting when I arrived.

Feb 23, 2018 at 13:40 comment added mustaccio For what it's worth, I had my luggage "lost" (sent to wrong destination) on direct flights -- twice.
Feb 23, 2018 at 11:34 comment added Andrew T. "This happened to almost every person I know" only them, or also the other passengers? Because if it's compared to the rest of the passengers on the same plane, then it's still a small percentage (I'm afraid you're a victim of confirmation bias)

Feb 23, 2018 at 6:23 comment added pkaeding I'm not sure how this would work for international flights, but I thought this answer was rather novel when I read it a while ago (it was scoped to domestic-US flights): travel.stackexchange.com/a/268/19510
Feb 23, 2018 at 6:01 comment added BruceWayne Are we assuming you're going to check a bag? Or is a possible answer to just pack everything you really need in a carry on sized bag?

Feb 23, 2018 at 1:12 comment added user541686 Have most people you know actually lost their luggage, or merely had them delayed? I've had suitcases not get to the destination on time, but I don't think I've ever had any luggage get lost entirely (or even had anything inside them removed), even internationally. And are you putting the wrong things in your luggage? It's for clothes, not laptops or passports or jewelry. If my suitcase got lost I would be annoyed (and demand compensation), not terrified. Put all your important stuff (that would ruin your life if lost) along with a few essential clothes you can wash in your carry-on.

Feb 22, 2018 at 17:12 comment added Sabine I've heard that it helps to have a brightly colored suticase, because it's more easily noticed when sitting in a corner. I have no idea if it's true, because the only time I had tight connections (45 mins in AMS both outbound and return), my bag was blue, and still made the connection. (Btw, I've flown some 10-20 connecting flights in my life, and my bag always arrived with me)

Feb 22, 2018 at 15:57 comment added choster Welcome to TSE. Our format is ill-suited to open-ended requests for advice, but the two pieces of advice frequent travelers will usually give about checked luggage are 1) never check luggage, and 2) if you must check luggage, get good insurance for it. I might edit your post to address this advice if you have already heard it.
