  2. Forgive me if this has already been asked, but how secure is the US direct service on arriving air passengers? I'm concerned about the airline removing the tags accidentally. Also how do you confirm they've grabbed your bags properly?


    Please elaborate. Is US Direct a luggage transfer service? Does it work both ways? We are arriving on Celebrity Mille 7am 7/10 (Ballantyne, unfortunately) and flying out of YVR 6pm. It would be great to be free of baggage for the day. Can we use them? How do I find out more info?
