    Answered Bags delayed by two days - but which airline to hassle for compensation?

    My outbound legs were interesting to say the least - its not often that the airline send you to a different airport without telling you but I will save the detail on that for the trip report when I get a chance to write it. Amongst the craziness my bags finally found me about 48 hours after I...
