I bought a new piece of new (expensive) luggage for a recent American Airline flight. Luggage arrived with zipper sheared off, wheel missing, wheel base sheared off, trim cut, 8 inch seam ripped and black marks over the entire piece.
When the piece arrived in Alaska (now connected Alaskan Airlines)I was rudely informed that all damage was within acceptable expectations and the supervisor refused to file a claim. I was also informed that I bought the luggage to protect the contents and that is what it did.
Where does it state that I should expect to use my luggage for half a trip? Or that this damage is within acceptable expectations?
Can anyone tell me how to complain to the correct department? I have not been able to locate direct phone numbers or an address.
I have one more trip that I have already paid for with American Airlines...can I wear a "complaint" t-shirt and still get on the plane?
