The flight is with Emirates, a quality airline, and each time during layover is a 5-hour and a 3.5-hour gap. And since the flight number is different each time, I think it’s reasonable to assume I will be switching planes.
I am only asking because I have lost my baggage once during flight change about 6 or 7 years ago on Lufthansa, and got it back several days into my trip. There was hardly any time for me to get off and rush to the other gate to get on again, and I fear that was probably why my luggage got lost.
I think there is a reasonable time gap and even though I bought the cheapest ticket available, I hope my luggage arrives with me, on time.
Is this unwise of me? What are your opinions on luggage getting lost? Does it matter where the transferring airport is? Or maybe the airline handling it?
