As I indicated in my post, I accept that this is probably just a fairly unusual and expensive lesson and I'm screwed. I do appreciate the knowledge I gained from this thread - i.e. that if I had...

Delta was very generous with me when they thoroughly wrecked what must have been a 20 year old Tumi at SJU. They didn't have a comparable bag on hand to trade me, so they recommended that I file a...
