Feeding the old meme that on Delta Don’t Expect Luggage To Arrive (or ‘Diverts Errant Luggage to Atlanta’), a man whose luggage was lost enroute to his dream destination wedding in Iceland is letting the world know he doesn’t believe Delta can be relied on when it counts. And he created a special wedding photo to get the message out.
Without luggage he didn’t have his wedding suit. This is what their wedding photo was supposed to look like, as photoshopped:

However here’s what it actually looked like:

According to Travel & Leisure the bags were left unattended on a carousel in Frankfurt. The passengers were flying Washington DC – New York JFK – Reykjavik and Delta told the couple to deal with the last carrier on their itinerary – air berlin. (They were re-routed DC – New York – Paris – Berlin – Reykjavik (!).
- It’s true that you make a baggage claim with the last carrier on the itinerary, not the one you checked your bags with.
- Something is off in the T+L telling though because as far as I know air berlin seres Reykjavik via Berlin and also Dusseldorf but not Frankfurt — Lufthansa, Wow Air, and Icelandair offer Frankfurt service.
Nonetheless it’s inadvisable to connect with checked baggage and a change of airline enroute to your wedding doesn’t help.
During the summer Icelandair offers two daily non-stops Washington Dulles – Reykjavik and Wow Air offers daily Baltimore – Reykjavik.
