Travel Notes: Suggestion for the Airlines
The first stage of our trip to Italy took us to the Boston airport, along with two of our checked bags. The third bag, for no reason I could discover, came on a later flight.
It would be helpful if, in such situations, the airline would announce the point at which all of the baggage from a particular flight had been put on the carousel. That way I would know my bag was missing and could take action accordingly, instead of waiting around for another twenty or thirty minutes in case it was still coming. So far as I can recall, I have never observed an airline doing so.
