I've never had the problem, and I've been Medallion at one level or another for about 20 years (or however long there's been a program). I, too, hope you got the agent's name and wrote a letter.

Not only in this situation, but, in my experience, the web site won't recognize things like a senior discount, bereavement fares, etc. You need a TA or direct contact with Delta.

Of course, this was a "companion" pig. I've never seen a companion dog in first class, but I guess it's possible. I assume you buy a seat for the "companion."

I'e been here, off and on, for two or three years. I've had dinner with Catman, and I find the site the absolute best place to talk about travel. Thanks, Randy.

Technically, you can't do it.
However,there's nothing lost by asking. I wouldn't "argue." Some agents will let you do it,others won't.

Your bags are going to go where they're tagged to go, on the flights they're tagged on (assuming the airline makes the connection). It really doesn't matter where you go or when.
