I guess this might be a silly question, but I thought I’d ask anyway. I’m flying ORD to LHR in May for a two week period. I generally only use a carry on and just stop at a Laundromat to wash my clothes a couple times during my trip (or in my bathroom sink). My flight will be on a United 767-300 and I have seat 21B reserved (aisle seat in E+). I have read on here that United boards economy from back to front (and aisle seats board last) and that the 767-300 has less overhead storage. I’m just wondering if you find it common when sitting close to the front of E+ on international flights that you have to gate check your bag? Also, if you do gate check your bag, is there a chance it can get lost? I normally don’t carry an extra change of clothes in my handbag/personal item, but maybe I should just to be on the safe side? Or instead of using a carry on at all, should I simply use a slightly larger bag and check it all the way through so I don’t have to wash clothes during my trip – what are the chances it will get lost if I check it right away (I have a United Express flight from CWA connecting in ORD)? Every time I’ve flown in the past on the way home my luggage gets lost for a day or so, so I’m slightly concerned that I’ll have to wear dirty clothes for a couple days if I check it on the way there…Thanks!
