UNPACKED TIP #4
WHAT IF YOU MISS YOUR CONNECTOR FOR AN INTERNATIONAL FLIGHT, WHAT HAPPENS TO YOUR BAGGAGE? AND WHAT TO DO.
If you miss your connector for an international flight, your baggage will not fly ahead of you. It is pulled from the flight. Immediately go to the airline to make arrangements for your next flight. If they need to switch you to another airline, make sure that they either move the bags to them or give them to you personally. As a back- up, when you check in with the new airlines, confirm they have possession of your luggage. This will save major headaches when you finally arrive at your destination.
