In Britain, thousands of tourists are forced to leave their suitcases at airports, hoping to fly away without luggage: queues reach 12 hours

Air chaos continues to cause problems for tourists, and not only in connection with arrival and departure – the delivery of luggage has now become a real disaster. European mass media write about one scandal after another – somewhere tourists were urged to leave their luggage and fly only with hand luggage, and others were warned that they would have to wait at the airport for at least 12 hours when they were finally given their suitcases. And many cannot find their suitcases at all. All this stimulates real riots.

Baggage unloading and loading are linked to the same labor shortage problems due to mass layoffs during the pandemic. The situation is aggravated by massive flight delays and the panic of tourists who arrive on the flight much earlier than they should.

“Baggage loading and unloading are de facto now broken, hence massive queues and panic. Tourists are asked to leave their suitcases and travel only with hand luggage, promising to send the luggage in two days. Real stress,” The Sun cites tourists’ complaints.

Promises to deliver luggage do not come true – one of the tourists complained that in the end she was left without her suitcase for almost three weeks. “It’s been 19 days since we last saw our luggage,” she said.

Another scandal was raised by British TUI tourists after they waited 12 hours to receive their luggage. They almost blew the door of the luggage compartment. As it turned out, tourists were redirected to another airport, and then stood in line for 12 hours, waiting for their suitcases.
