I had a similar situation ex EU where they tried to argue that since I was "home" I did not need replacement stuff, but my situation involved a subsequent trip the required the suitcase and certain outfits in it. I simply had to replace them when 4 days later, there was no sign of my bag. I thought they should pay, under the Montreal convention. They protested and made excuses but could not explain why the Montreal convention did not apply. End of the day, they did reimburse me. It was well under the amount of the Montreal convention.
