    Okay. Here's a question for seasoned DL mileage runners. I'm about to do a double connection including non-hub connections in both directions (Florida seems to be a popular way of making fares come down dramatically for last minute purchases).

    I've seen luggage pop out at SFO with other destination luggage tags(YVR, LAX) on it, so I'm assuming that luggage handling guys at non-hub airports aren't typically looking for connecting luggage when they throw stuff onto the belt.

    Has anyone else has successful (or very unsuccessful) experiences with checked luggage getting transferred from one flight to another in non-hub airports?

    For safety's sake, should I just carry my luggage onboard (which would be annoying, as I'd like to bring a relatively decent toiletries / shaving kit for my biz meeting the day I arrive)??

    I have done it but it has been a long time. No, there wasn't a problem but I suspect there could be.

    If you need toiletries and shaving stuff for a business meeting the next day, you shouldn't put this in checked luggage anyway.

    On my return, my checked back going through Tampa transferred just fine.
