Delta sucks.
 
2002-10-15 11:29:04 AM
No, I still don't have my farking luggage that was lost for the first time on September 12th.
 
2002-10-15 11:29:44 AM
it's not lost, it's just in St. Louis.
 
2002-10-15 11:33:37 AM
It's not lost, Jeff, it's just trying to find itself.

I see Fark is steamlining the submission system.

Solution: travel light whenever possible. biatching at the counter girl doesn't do anything.
 
2002-10-15 11:40:00 AM
It seems that this letter got lost on the Fark submission queue.

Well, better late than never, I suppose.

PS - there are two kinds of luggage. Carry on and lost.

You are not your lost luggage, you are not your suit.

Use this opportunity to reinvent yourself and thank Delta for the chance at a new life.

Welcome to reality, pal.

You'll get nothing and you'll like it. And you know what? You'll fly Delta again in the future. Do you want to know why?

Because, like every other goomba in this thread, you fly whichever flight happens to be the CHEAPEST FLIGHT with the FEWEST STOPS that leaves at the RIGHT TIME. There is no airline loyalty in your purchasing decision and Delta knows it. They would gain NOTHING by reimbursing you.

You lost your luggage? BOO-HOO. join the 3 out of 4 other americans who have had their luggage lost at some point.
 
2002-10-15 11:42:09 AM
A 6-year old complaint? Is he still looking for the luggage?
 
2002-10-15 11:42:56 AM
...I was still 'hanging in the wind', so to speak

Is that what they call going commando, these days?

People wonder why airlines like Southwest are succeeding and suck-jobs like United and Delta are always begging the Gov for another handout.
 
2002-10-15 11:45:46 AM
BOO-HOO

*it happens

Delta once overbooked a flight by 15 seats. Rather than ask 15 individuals to take a later flight, they decide that it would be easier to split up a group of 30 high schoolers on their way to a Washington D.C. conference. When the second group arrived in Baltimore instead of Washington, in the snow waiting for Delta's chartered bus...well, lets just say this particular high school now forbids travel by Delta.

Not sure where my luggage went but that baggage handlers suit sure is nice....... and familiar
 
2002-10-15 11:48:32 AM
Ironbar: I know why: it's because SWA employees are not guarenteed a job from one day to the next like the union crews. I grew up in a union house and have great respect for what unions can do, but c'mon, they have milked their way into becomming lazy, overpaid, biatchy, "poor me" farkers. They don't have to fear for their jobs, so they don't do them.

Someone needed to read the back of his ticket. I think its called the Warsaw Accord or convention or something. It stipulates that you basically get no money (ok, not nearly enough money :p) if an airline loses your luggage on an international flight.
 
2002-10-15 11:51:14 AM
Extra change of clothes in carry-on luggage ... check.

Stuff I can live without in steerage ... check.

Leave the dildo at home.

From 1996! umm... hello?!

Delta stands for "Doesnt Even Leave The Airport"!
 
2002-10-15 11:52:57 AM
I was once scheduled on a Delta flight which was delayed on the ground for 5 hours.... Why you ask? Because the pilot's seat had a tear in it. It took them that long to replace the seat. Why not take off anyway with the farking tear? FAA Regulations forbid any kind of malfunction NOT being fixed immediately. What bull. My headset works about 50% of the time - they never delayed a flight for that reason.

So now I'm home and have few of the clothes or toiletrees I own. Some of those lost have great sentimental value and cannot be replace

Toiletrees? Is that where dogs lift their legs?

I'm also curious as to how one obtains "great sentimental value" to toiletries.
 
2002-10-15 11:56:40 AM
Nekochan - Precisely.
All airlines release themselves from liability by adding an addendum to the ticket. Anything you get from them for lost luggage, is a "courtesey", as far as they're concerned.I'd be royally pissed if it were me, but there isn't a damned thing you can do about it. Dolma_Rodeo gave the best suggestion. That's what I do.
 
2002-10-15 11:58:58 AM
One of the previous posters had it dead on the money. This guy will NEVER see anything from Delta except for their bare-minimum $100 baggage loss payment.

For reinbursement he wants first class? To Rome? Good farking luck.

If they did this every time someone lost their bags somewhere, 1/2 the country would be flying first class...
 
2002-10-15 11:58:58 AM
I was waiting for the story to get good... or interesting... or at least get to the part where something truly dire happened...

That moment never came. Here is the cliff notes version:

Delta lost my luggage, and then all the flight attendants weren't nice either. I don't like delta.

The worst flights I've ever had were with american companies. One time a couple of years ago, I had my luggage broken into while flying from Newark to St Louis. I had a number of items stolen and 3 years later, I still trying to get TWA to reimburse me for them. Their line is that it's not their responsibility but the responsibility of the airport. I'm guessing this guy will be told the same.
 
2002-10-15 12:01:56 PM
the airlines don't give a shiat about you. they've already got your money, they've got your luggage.

you don't even get a kiss afterwards, just a bag of nuts - MAYBE.

This retard got his luggage back - why was this posted?

Fly Southwest.

If they don't fly to your destination, walk.
 
2002-10-15 12:03:15 PM
Delta sucks.

Had a horrible experience with them last year during X-mas. And CrazyEddie, I will NOT fly them again, even if they are the cheapest airline. It's worth the extra money to fly on an airline that at least treats its customers like human beings.

Warsaw Accord? I never agreed to a Warsaw Accord. I've never even been to Poland!
 
2002-10-15 12:05:23 PM
I agree with carrying light. I carryon ONE medium sized case that I can fit under the seat. Suit folds into it in a clever fashion, and has space for a few pair of shirts, pants, book or two maybe. Small bag of toothpaste/shaver stuff. I would never, ever consider checking anything through.

That's just domestic. If you are travelling internationally, STILL travel light. Purchase clothes onsite and support their economy. Anything that doesn't fit back into your carryon, ship it seperately through a real shipper. Hotels can give you the info. I don't think anyone should ever lose luggage, but with the ammount of traffic and level of intelligence the carriers.. you're really not bright if you have 2 or 3 peices of checked luggage.

I think it's $100 for a lost piece of luggage. Fortunately for me, I've never had to find out.

But why leave the dildo at home? What possible good can it do there?
 
2002-10-15 12:13:07 PM
If you have to have it, use fed ex or ups, and insure the bejeezes out of it.

my day is complete when someone quotes the talking heads...

on a side note, i met tina and chris last week... tina is the hottest 51 yr old i've ever seen... she still has a six pack. sweetest woman alive, too.

It was six years ago. Time to lay down the cross.

That being said, airlines suck based on their pricing structures alone.

Check as much baggage as you please. But I always have enough funds available to buy new clothes if my luggage is lost. And that's the ONLY thing I have in checked baggage. Clothes.
 
2002-10-15 12:15:33 PM

Anyone have the cliff notes?

Good luck, seeing as TWA filed bankruptcy and was bought out by American Airlines 2 years ago. Then you had 9/11, it's all the terrorists' fault, maybe they have already won.

That's not true, CE. I'm a complete whore to JetBlue. If I'm going someplace that they fly to, I don't even bother *checking* the other airlines; I know that JB's gonna be the cheapest, or at least competitive, plus they treat you like a human being. And the free TV at every seat, can't forget about that.

I believe that was a reference to the asshat security personnel that made a woman turn on her vibrator at the checkpoint then laughed at her.
