Well, I made it back to Bangkok tonight, but my checked luggage did not. I'm guessing that they didn't get it on the plane from Detroit to Tokyo. When I arrived in Detroit, I went straight to the gate, and within five minutes they called the final boarding call for my flight. I'd like to give a big one finger salute to the ground crew in Detroit who let our flight from Cincinnati sit on the runway for fifteen minutes waiting for them to get the gate ready.
The problem with not having my luggage is that I had cheese for the girls in it. It was frozen and packed with ice in a container that boasted to keep things frozen for at least 30 hours. We'll see what state it is in when it arrives tomorrow.
