Well... looks like it finally happened! I was returning from Denver this past week (Wednesday) and after the 2nd announced delay, rather than arrive home well after 2 a.m., I elected to stay the night at the Westin located right at DIA and rebook my air-travel to the following morning. As I stood at the Southwest counter rebooking, I asked if the 22" roller bag I'd checked for the Wednesday evening flight would be awaiting my arrival the next day at the Southwest Baggage office in Reno. I was assured it would be. After 1 stop in Oakland, the original plane I was supposed to take arrived in Reno, as I thought, around 1 a.m. Thursday morning. My new flight arrived about noon later the same day and no bag was there. I filled out the "investigation" form describing the bag and it's contents. I've received a call from Southwest the last 2 days and expect I'll received one today telling me they're still "researching" it's whereabouts, which I appreciate. I fly Southwest pretty much exclusively a couple times monthly and have for many, many years. The only other baggage "experience" I had was about 10 years ago during a trip to New Orleans, my bag failed to arrive and was delivered to my hotel the following morning. Can anyone share with me what to expect if after a few more days they're unable to locate the bag? I know many will recommend that I carry-on such a bag and I board in the top 20, so bin space is always available to me. I check the bag for convenience, as I'm never in a super hurry... wasn't so "convenient" this time. Though the Tumi Townhouse bag was slightly over $1,000 10+ years ago when I purchased it, nothing else in the bag is/was remarkable. A pair of dress-shoes with some pricey Good Feet inserts, couple pairs dress-slacks, couple new golf-shirts, toiletries and the like.
