On simple itineraries we take our stuff as carryon. If we have connections making carrying on more painful, we check. In nearly 2 million miles, I recall only two or three times when checked luggage did not make it on the same flight, either on LH or on flights that involved an LH connection.

But yes, we know it can happen that things get messed up, and one needs to plan accordingly.

Bottom line, this is a non-event. How to dress at a wedding, big deal? Nobody died, this is not the bride. So they could have planned better, sure, if the thing was so critical.

Once, in Moscow, I was chairing the first session of the first day of a conference, luggage delayed. Very pleased to be there wearing jeans and tee shirt.
