I just got to NYC, and it seems US Airways forgot to bring my luggage. I asked them if they knew where my bag was, and to my surprise, they did. Even more surprising is that it hadn’t moved at all during my cross-country flight. Of course, this kind of situation is relatively uncommon.
One thing I have noticed through this is that on a rare occasion where it is important that my luggage arrives on time, it doesn’t. I will be meeting (networking) with a bunch of people at an event tonight, and doing some light speaking.
