We flew Delta (which we always do) into Washington and then Alaska Air into Anchorage. It was a quick turn over to get on that second plane. When we landed in Anchorage our luggage had not made it. Luckily we were not on a time line and were told it would probably be on the next flight in, which it was. We were fortunate enough that Alaska Air had a flight incoming every hour. So quick plane changes mean your luggage may not be with you.
You have every right to be frustrated and disappointed. Pick yourself up by your bootstraps and try again. Life is that way, unfortunantly. Move forward and count your blessings to be married for a year to a wonderful person!
