Sour Kraut

Two months after first announcing his impending visit, German aristo Lord Heinrich has arrived on the Cote d'Azur for the international advertising schmoozefest, the Cannes Lions awards. Lord H emailed through some requests to his local PA, which included transport from the airport and a decent hotel.

Sadly, not even a frequent flyer gold card and upper class travel could prevent the inevitable happening - Lord H's luggage failed to make the connection at Heathrow. This was particularly ironic considering the good Lord had frequently mocked the lost luggage woes of others less fortunate (and more economy) than himself. His servant in France has lost cases 5 out of the last 6 trips to Heathrow.

But perhaps the ultimate stinger came when Lord H was told he had been downgraded to a smaller helicopter for the short flight from Nice to Cannes. As his Lordship had no baggage, they downgraded him. Oh the shame!

Sounds like he needs to try my favorite travel "must have" Global Bag Tags Guess no matter if you're a peasant or a Lord, your luggage isn't safe ;)
