Baggage madness am Dusseldorf Airport!
The summer holidays in NRW are coming to an end, but chaotic conditions still prevail Dusseldorf Airport. Anyone who now wants to go on summer vacation independently of the holidays needs nerves of steel, as they have for weeks.
But the absolute nightmare of many travelers becomes reality when their own suitcase suddenly disappears. But burying your head in the sand is useless. On the contrary: There are a few things that you should definitely pay attention to.
Düsseldorf Airport: Baggage chaos continues
Thousands of passengers from NRW alone had to make this bitter experience this summer. Due to a lack of staff, there are massive problems in baggage handling at many airports. Again and again, passengers have to go on vacation without luggage because it could not be brought on board in time. In Düsseldorf, many passengers have to wait a long time for their luggage, especially in the evening.
A Eurowings spokesman told RP Online that passengers whose luggage does not show up at the destination airport should keep all documents, especially the boarding pass and baggage tag, and create an official report. This can be done either during baggage tracing in the arrivals area of the destination airport or online via the airline’s baggage self-service.
