Always good to go away (especially Aruba), but always good to be home.
Hope it is not too much pain to be missing luggage when you are home again...nothing that is sorely, immediately needed.
I think is worse to get TO your destination without luggage.
Our son's luggage was somehow taken off at an intermediate stop in June...same plane with 1-stop. They told him it was on the next plane (3 hours later), but it took more than 48 hours to deliver it. He was staying 75 miles from the airport (South Carolina not Aruba). A week's vacation without clothes is not fun.

the luggage story. no luggage appeared before 11 pm when we went to bed. however, at 1:20 am some weird gravel voiced guy called, scaring the living hell out of me. he had our baggage and was delivering it within the hour. he had our name right after three tries and after i corrected him several times he got our address right. he was confused enough and his voice was scary enough that i actually called AA to verify that they had a driver running around in the middle of the night delivering baggage. they verified that in 4 or 5 east coast markets they deliver 24/7 and ours was being delivered. a few minutes later, this guy was here with the luggage.

this morning i wrote to AA with a suggestion/complaint. the complaint was that he scared the living crap out of us calling in the middle of the night and the suggestion was that they not allow anyone to scare the living crap out of anyone else in the middle of the night. i was very polite, lol, but needed to make the suggestion/complaint since i am sitting here bleary eyed this morning.

so, i want your opinion... 24/7 delivery or maybe a shut off between 11 pm and 7 am?

The last time we came home from Germany, we had one bag missing. I think we flew Northworst. Anyway, our bag was delivered to our house some time in the middle of the night...w/no phone call!! At least we got it.

I would say shut off after 11pm - but communicate that to us first!
