I’m what people may consider an insecure overachiever. Has anybody here ever had the same feeling?
United lost my son's car seat on a 3 hr flight. It was registered as a checked luggage with the proper csrseat tag and everything.

Anyway to get points for the inconvenience, I'm Premier platinum if it matters. They did give me a free loaner carseat until mine arrives but it's kinda crappy tbh.
