Not even airline executives are safe from having a bad flight.
Last week, Alaska Airlines president and CEO, Brad Tilden, got on stage at an airline gathering in Washington, D.C., and according to a report in the LA Times, told the audience that his checked bag had been misplaced during the flight and was delivered to him a day late.
It's happened before, too. The airline executive said the last time his airline misplaced his bag was 25 years ago.
