Not sure how it went at Perth Airport for them, Roy. At LAX, they had to take their bags through U.S. CBP/Customs but they had "Victor" to assist them with that. Jim was in a wheelchair and Cathi, the trooper, was walking with him. We then got Cathi her own wheelchair on the little trek from Delta T3 to T2

But when the bags arrive on the Amsterdam none of the owners will be there to accompany them through USCPB.

Correct; don't really know how that works since I've never had (and prob never will have) that privilege 😉 Scrapnana would be a good one to ask

Probably like on the Grand Voyage.  You fill out paperwork, attach a shipping label, then Fed Ex takes them away and delivers to you a few days later.  They had an employee join the ship at the last port of call before we arrived back in the U.S. to handle all the questions/problems that cropped up.  Not sure about what Customs thinks of it.  Holland was the one to worry about all that.

I've got a glass of Peller Estates Pinot Grigio.  Nothing fancy, but I'm happy to toast the happy reunion.  Soon, I hope. 🙂

That’s what I am drinking too.  😃Tried to post a photo but I couldn’t rotate it.

I know that employee; nice Canadian lady from Vancouver, BC. She does that every year. The remainder of the year she's a HAL port agent in Vanc. Cool job!

It's the same if your bags are delay on an international flight.   Our bags were delayed coming back from Europe once.  The bags spent an extra day in London before following us home.   They navigated thru customs without our presence.
