Dave looked back in his past journals and confirmed this is not the first time we've lost luggage with Air France. Arghh......
We had a delightful journey -- good connections, nice lounges for reasonable layovers, and good flights. The over-the-water lie-flat seats were the highlight. We had enough Alaska points to fly business class, so that was money well spent for us, personally. We didn't really think much about losing our luggage this trip -- but in thinking how many connections we had, I guess we aren't surprised. And put Air France into the mix, and I think we are doubly not surprised!
We always pack our carry-ons for just such a lost or delayed luggage situation -- so other than not having a few creature comforts -- (( and our coats which were too bulky for our carryons)) -- we are personally fine. The 100 Euros late/lost luggage compensation will be more than sufficient to replace those here. The the real issue is that our 2 pcs of lost luggage is packed with everything we needed for here for projects (plus gifts for host family). It's day 3 of trying to locate luggage - and Air France doesn't know anything about it's whereabouts. So we wait . . . impatiently.
