Like I said, we get off the plane last, and walk leisurely… also we have kids so that takes extra time. Valid point about someone walking off with it but if you think there are any guarantees either way you might be in for a disappointment. Besides it's not like its desolate by the time we get there, just after the main rush of pushiness subsides.

My bag has always stood out so I guess I haven't had to wait too long at a carousel. I've never really had any problems at baggage carousels.
