There I was, waiting at the Austin airport for my luggage. I had just returned from Denver and was ready to take a nap. One by one, people picked up their bags. While mine was a no show. Then and there I was regretting my decision of not carrying on my suitcase. I was freaking out because it had never happen to me before. I did not know what to expect. Southwest told me that it was probably on another Denver flight. I gave them my information and they told me they would deliver my bag to my home. Apparently, more than 90% of luggage gets returned. That stat calmed me down and later I got a called about my bag. I was thrilled and all my stuff was there.
If your bag isn’t at the baggage claim, don’t panic. The bag is probably on another flight. Just make sure to tell the airline and make a report before leaving the airport. Once, your bag arrives they will deliver it you. Or you can just carry on your bag and avoid the drama. I think I might carry on my bag next time.
