Ah, Sweet Mystery of Flight!

Why is it that we were unable to change to an earlier flight in Denver because we had checked luggage, and Homeland Security rules say that no luggage may fly without the person who checked it; yet, when our five bags remained in Chicago while we flew, unaware, to Syracuse, the airline had no problem assuring us that the bags would fly on to Ithaca sometime today, quite unaccompanied?

We got home around 1 AM to a much colder and snowier place than the Rockies we just left. Lots to recap, but now I have to deal with 101 work-related emails.

LATER: The luggage arrived intact, delivered to our door, some 50 miles from the Syracuse Airport. Does this service help to explain rising airfares?
