Last Monday, I flew on a Delta flight from Columbus, OH to Detroit Wayne to Paris CDG for a business trip. Upon arrival in Paris, my bag never arrived. The Delta app said (and still says) "bag on plane" for the flight from Detroit to Paris, but then nothing.
I immediately filed a claim with the Air France in CDG (my flight was operated by Delta, but Air France facilitates baggage complaints for Delta in CDG). I arrived home to the US last Friday (4 days after arriving in Paris) with no luggage and my bag has not been found and there are no updates from Delta. When I arrived home, I stopped at the baggage service window in CMH and the lady told me to go ahead and submit a claim for lost luggage because in her experience, it was unlikely I would ever see my bag again.
Over the weekend, I made a list of all of the belongings in my bag, which was fairly easy to do because I travel for business frequently, usually for the same length of time each trip, and have a sort of routine for the types of things I take. I had also packed a number of new clothing items, which made them stand out more clearly in my memory.
Today, I submitted a claim on Delta's website for Out of Pocket expenses during my trip (a whopping 17 EUR) and for Lost Items, which including detailing every item from my list of the items that were packed in my bag. I also submitted the requested documentation, including copies of my checked baggage receipt, my boarding passes, my "delayed" baggage claim receipt from CDG and the receipt for my out of pocket expenses. They did not ask for receipts for the items packed in my bag (reserved the right to request this later). Unfortunately, like most other normal humans, I do not have receipts for my belongings. Even though many of the items were fairly new, I just do not keep receipts beyond the first wear, so the receipts have been tossed. My lost belongings have retail value of a little over $2,000.
I am Delta Platinum medallion status.
What should I expect as next steps?
