Lost luggage that is...My friend flew Alitalia from Washington Dulles to Prague with a change in Milan. I should have warned her, but I've been trying to block out the memory of flying through Milan on my way to a cruise beginning in Barcelona. My luggage was lost for not one day or even three days but EIGHT WEEKS. That's right. I took a three-week trip and never got my luggage. It was miraculously found somewhere in Europe and returned to me well after I got home. Luckly, my friend received her luggage in Prague a day after it went missing. But there's something about Alitalia and Milan that makes me want to scream out -- be sure to pack extra clothes and necessities in your carry-on bag! I'm not going to even get into the issue of the attitude when it comes to Alitalia employees. A quote from my friend's e-mail, "Do all Italians hate Americans, or is it just the people at Alitalia?"
