The Case of My Missing Golf Clubs
We're sorry; we have no updates on this bag and are still trying to locate it. Please check back again.
This is the continuing message I've been receiving about, sadly, my golf clubs in their travel bag, along with a decent amount of clothes, shoes, toiletries, etc. Apparently, that status would be updated if one of a few things happened:
1) It arrived in the wrong city and was not claimed, and the staff there swiped the bag tag.
2) It arrived in SFO as it should have, was not claimed and located by the staff at SFO, who swiped the bag tag.
3) It never actually left either Myrtle Beach or Atlanta, and as such, someone swiped the bag tag because they wanted to update the status and find out where to send it.
It's been over a day, and given that any of those scenarios, to me at least, should have been identified by now, I'm thinking that my bag just might be lost. I'm not sure what that means -- whether someone actually took it home mistakenly or intentionally -- or if it's behind a closet somewhere in Atlanta airport.
All I know is that apparently, if no status change has occured by this weekend, I can file a claim, which Delta will take up to 180 DAYS to repay. That's six months to you and me. And pretty much the entire golf season. Which is going to create some issues for me, one way or another.
Sometimes, flying is a bitch.
