If you don't get the answer you want, talk to someone else! I learned this when flying from SFO to Milan via Frankfurt. Car rental in Frankfurt was $600 less than in Milan ($900 vs. $300 for two weeks in '97) so I canceled my Milan car rental and reserved in Frankfurt. Once we arrived in Frankfurt, we told a Lufthansa ticket agent we weren't taking our connection to Milan. She said, "Nein! Das ist verboten!" (No, that's not allowed!) Baloney I thought, so went to another ticket agent at another counter and she said, "Kein problem!" (No problem!) and arranged to get our luggage off the plane.

So that's when I learned the value of finding the right person to speak with. So glad to hear Amtrak is so accommodating to not only bikes, but tandems too.
