Is it wrong to go to bed before 10 PM?

Yes, but it's always 10 pm somewhere.....just like it's always 5 pm somewhere.

OTOH, it depends greatly on who or what is in that bed.

Mr. Kipper is out of town, so the dogs are sharing the bed tonight. I believe they are trying to see just how much space they can occupy before I move to the sofa.

My take on Delta is that they have their share of problems and issues like any other airline, but they actually try hard and do give a good amount of power to their front line people to fix those compared to their peers. There are some dud employees like you get in any big company, but as a whole there's a culture that encourages them to find a way the rules let them say 'yes' and get you a solution, status or not, rather than the default 'No' I've typically gotten from American during service recovery attempts.

hence “no surprise”

what about your response to a notional beer call on Sun 30 Sep? it’s looking like that could be the autumnal ITH-DC road trip

what are those “magic words” of which you speak? do you mean “your response”? or do you mean “road trip”? or do you perhaps mean “beer call”?

I'm betting that the answer is beer call.
