American Airlines Bloodies Baggage?

A Maryland woman claims her luggage was ‘covered in blood’ when she retrieved it from the carousel.

Christy says that after bringing it to an American Airlines employees attention they, “…didn’t apologize, didn’t say, wow, why don’t you go wash your hands, let me get security down here with gloves…”

American Airlines (AA) say there’s no biohazard as a preliminary look revealed that baggage handlers made no note of any bloodletting incident.

AA sent the bag to a laboratory for testing.

As having your baggage drenched in blood is not a service contractually covered in her ticket purchase, Christy will be surcharged an extra $150.
