Have you ever had the fear of your luggage not being with you on your plane when you head to another destination, especially when your flight is connected? Have you ever had that bad feeling that your luggage was left behind? I am so happy that when I travel soon, I won’t be checking in a bag. I will be just taking a carry on with me. I want to have a piece of mind that my things are with me, and not stowed under the plane, and not knowing what is happening with my luggage. I have connecting flights with my destination, so I better be safe than sorry later. I have minimized quite significantly with the amount I will be taking. It is only for a week and a day or two, so I do not need to pack much. I have packed a few shirts here and there, under garments, one or two shoes, and just a pair or two Capri pants, and plus a little bag of toiletries. If I need anything, I can just ask my family there or something. I am all prepared. I do not want to risk my luggage being delayed. That will be my worst nightmare.
I know it doesn’t matter with that, as long as you get to your destination safely, that is more important than a luggage being delayed but it does matter too. what will you wear? It was my worst nightmare, coming back to Canada from Armenia. I had taken when it was at the time Armenian Airlines. My Luggage arrived to Frankfurt Germany and I had taken Lufthansa Airlines, and when we landed in Toronto, A lot of peoples luggage came, but mine and a few people from my group had their luggage missing. We didn’t end up getting out of the airport until almost 2 hours later trying to figure out my luggage delay, and so they called the Airport in Germany, and my luggage was left behind as well as others. So that was a sign of relief. I got my belongings back 4 days later. I had a whole bunch of souvenirs, and gifts for people and it was just my worst nightmare. I fear connecting flights. Sometimes with direct too, but most of the time with direct you get your luggage and you feel at ease, but since I am traveling in the states, There is no way I am checking in my bag. I have got a carry on that is to the size of the airlines request and allowable luggage size which I am happy and plus I will have my hand bag which is good enough for me. Now I get to travel with no stress and my mind always being on my things.
If you do not really need to check in your luggage when you travel with connecting flights, I suggest you get carry on. The best thing you can do. The liquids must be in compliance with the airlines and the countries restrictions to measures… see with your airlines and your security safety websites. Have a safe and worry free trip everyone if your going somewhere.
