In Nov, I took a flight from D.C. to Portland, Oregon. Flight was late and they were in a rush to board us. To shave minutes off the boarding process, the ground crew took all the carry on luggage from the 20 or so people yet to board, including mine. There was no pre-announcement, they just grabbed the luggage from our hands and gate checked it. Note: they were not rude, just a little aggressive in getting those bags.
So of course, Murphy’s Law, I had a pump set failure 1 hour into our trip. My kit was in my luggage, which was now in the belly of the plane. Seven hours later, I get to Portland. My blood sugar is over 500 and I feel like crap. I changed my set in the baggage claim, went outside and vomited and then got in a cab for home. I vomited again on my front lawn. Got inside and took a big bolus of Fiasp. About four hours later (about 1 a.m.), my sugar was down.
What would you all do in this situation? Call Delta out on their luggage grabbing and explain to them the ramifications? I know I should have pulled my kit out but I got separated from my carry on so quickly. I didn’t have a lot of time to react.
Should I let it go? Or??
Thanks for your help!
