    Edit: forgot to mention the pilot set off without anyone’s luggage onboard. Sounds like he knew but still decided to fly

    Most airlines will reimburse you for the bare essentials you need to buy when your bag is delayed. If you are away from home this may cover essential toiletries, underwear and laundry costs. If your bag is delayed on your return home, airlines may consider that your losses were less as you had clothes and other essentials available to you. Some airlines have a daily rate which they will pay per day your bag is delayed.

    ETA: If you do get any compensation, I suggest you spend it on an anger management course. Stuff happens.

    Not uncommon. If you were seriously kicking the baggage carousel then either you have anger management issues or you are suffering from stress to the point where it is making you ill.

    You should address this.

    If you are on your outbound flight, purchase the essentials you need and keep receipts for reimbursement. If you were on your flight home generally nothing (unless your travel insurance covers it)
