Chinese Thursday for me. We had a 'biggest loser' at work a while back. The winner traditionally treats everyone to chinese. It took 3 weeks, but finally everyone who participated is in the office at the same time...

Yes, and that's what I'm flying NRT-ICN-NRT.

Thanks to all for the PMs with good opinion and commentary.

I just ticketed the itinerary -- it has basically become my "Farewell to Continental Airlines" trip/mileage run. It's probably the last time I'll fly "Continental" on a major trip (I'll probably do some more longhauls in the fall/winter months, but the Continental brand will have virtually disappeared by then given the increasing pace of the integration and rebranding).

I'm going to waitlist for a SWU upgrade on the DFW-EWR-HNL-GUM (Island Hopper)-NRT portion of the trip. Fingers crossed it clears!

Hello classic box from the exciting state of DE. Would be much further along if road crews didn't decide to randomly close two lanes:rolleyes:

At least you got it. I had a hell of a time getting my buddy's luggage once when he flew into SAN but we spent the weekend in LA so CO transferred it to AEX and they proceeded to play terminal bingo at LAX with it.

Should I go home tonight or earn my 40th night at Marriott and stick with my original o dark thirty return home?

Agree we were lucky to get luggage so soon -- we committed a rookie-esque error by fully relying on checked luggage. Of course the AAirline doubled down on said error by providing us with incorrect and misleading information as to when our bags were picked up/en route.

I'm a big fan of carry-on.:D
Had a good friend that flew out for an interview and they lost her luggage. She had to sew the bed sheets into jammies:eek:

I've done six weeks with a carry-on, but I was spending most of it in Africa and shorts don't take up a lot of room. My colleagues are always checking 2-3 bags and arriving with 0.
