Alaska Cruise (two days before) -- Fly to Seattle

Alaska's State FlagBilly D. picked us up around 8:30 A.M. and took us to the Pensacola airport for our 10:30 flight to Dallas.

All our flights were uneventful and on time. The good news: American upgraded us to first class, from Dallas to Seattle. The "other" news: they lost our luggage.

The luggage clerk at SeaTac assured us, via her scan code machine, that the bags were coming on another plane and would be delivered to our hotel in the middle of the night. At the hotel we confirmed this by computer and hoped for the best -- very glad we had added an extra day to our itinerary.

Coming in from the airport we were upset about the missing luggage but couldn't help noticing the sunshine and clear skies. No Seattle rain today.

The hotel was good and the front desk clerk told us our room had a great view of the space needle.

And it did.

After a night of fitful sleep, I called the front desk at 5:00 A.M. and learned our bags arrived at 3:00 A.M. All three of them. What a relief.
