The last leg I took a bump - it was going to get home well after midnight with the time that flight was going to leave anyway.

This week I will fly to Austin and back, two flights each way. What do you want to bet that I will be there and get home on the scheduled times.
I would suggest that you somehow make sure this message is delivered in the first time cruiser section of this blog. They probably need this reminder than a lot of experienced travelers. But your advice is good for all cruisemates.
