Alyssa Edwards...Drag Queen Extraordinaire. Though frustrating to be without your bag for five days.

Girrrrrrrrl! Do not mess with an angry drag queen! They have an audience and will share stories about the drama they have endured.

That aside, losing a bag for that long makes me think it's not lost...it's gone.

Love. She was in London last week and saw "Everybody's Talking about Jaime". Maybe they lost her bag of gowns on the way back ha ha

Why would you HIGHLY doubt that an entertainer (actor and producer according to IMDB), with a bunch of TV and movie credits, wouldn't be in the top 5% of AA flyers?

87% of all AA flyers only fly once a year, so taking two trips puts someone in the top 13% right off the bat.

Top 5% isn't that difficult

No clue who she is but on the totem pole of problems at AA, lost luggage isn’t all that high IMO.

I'd make a strong bet that any EP is easily in the top 5% of AA flyers, given that there are probably less than 100K (as there were ~60K 4 years ago). Heck, top tier airline status might not even be 5% of FT posters.

Wow. That is an interesting stat. I never would have guessed the vast majority of flyers are only once-a-year.

stupid question I’m sure but how does that stat work? 87% of travellers take a single segment, one way trip per year? How do they get back?

i clicked through to the source and it didn’t seem to allow for the possibility of round trips

The footnote for the stat says “unique passengers flown.” Doesn’t specify anything about segments. My guess is they calculated per reservation; e.g., 87% of pax only travel on 1 reservation (most of which are probably RTs) per year.
