New Samsonite Luggage Handle Sliced My Hand Open
Samsonite Suitcase - Complaint
Resolution Update on 02/01/2013:
Samsonite contacted me with the offer of a new suitcase; it arrived today.
ALLENTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA -- I travel for a living and in September purchase a new Samsonite suitcase at the outlet in Reading PA. The rubber on the lifting handle starting coming off in November and finally in December as I reached to lift the bag, my hand was sliced. I was in Denver heading to the airport and had to stop and get stitched. Travelled home the next day with duct tape covering the handle.
I called customer service and have been getting the run around. Am now told that I need to purchase a new suitcase and it is normal wear and tear. Really? the suitcase was used 5 times. You mean to tell me that the handle should disintergrate after 5 uses.
