I have an American Tourister spinner (luggage suitcase), which can only be checked in due to its size. Unfortunately, my expandable handle got damaged while it was expanded, and it can no longer fold so that it could be checked in. It's way past its warranty, as it's now something like fifteen years old, but I still really love it (as it has sentimental value to me).
Will this be acceptable for check in, or do I now need to get a new suitcase?
We're on holiday abroad and will be flying home soon.
