We've just picked up the bag. The jet fuel (or whatever smells exactly like jet fuel) that had soaked the bag is now dry, so no harm, no foul, feels the airline.
Don't let George Clooney fool you. American Airlines doesn't give two shits about you, or at least, your stuff. They've transformed a regular bag into a highly flammable bag, all for the cost of "sorry, there's nothing we can do". Remarkable.
