Interlining if the bags is hardly the issue. If the UA plane is late enough that OP canít make connection, UA is not responsible for IRROPs handling of connection. To LH, OP has missed his flight. I donít think Iíd care if my bag was interlined to a plane thatís already left

As for delay of one meaning delay of other - thatís far from true. OPs LH plane might have clearing to land at ORD while OPís originating flight could be held. Iíve missed a few connection that left on time because my first plane was delayed due to weather hold. Doesnít even need to be a hold. I was on a flight diverted because of weather as we were about to land. Other plane took off on time. Trying to land at Memphis and we were diverted on approach to Arkansas I think.

absolutely not true. If you fake your sick day your employer could terminate you.

I think the bigger issue is that most of the members here don't have the kind of job where you just call in sick and get a free pass on work that day.
