I just spoke to my wife who is sitting in an Alitalia plane at Rome at the moment. That flight is two hours delayed, meant to leave at 17.00, now we have 19.00, a time she should have arrived here already, and all they give as an excuse is that there are three bags on board of passenger who are not inside. Two hours, for three bags? Come on, something sounds fishy here.

Quoting NA (Thread starter):

I am sure you know that baggage is not allowed to fly if the owner is not on board (there are some excemptions, but not too many). But I must say: 2 hours is indeed a little weird. Maybe your wife has seen some loading downstairs? I mean off loading and loading back in again?
It is always hard to tell what exactly the problem was.

AZ has proven over and over again that they are more than capable of doing retarded things at times especially referring to baggage. There was an incidence where AZ had over 200 'unclaimed' bags at Kennedy meanwhile the luggage at Kennedy was for the wrong flight to begin with...AZ has issues financially therefore it will trickle down to performance (because of man power)

Sure the bags need to be offloaded, I had that some times as well. But that never took longer than 30 minutes. Two hours definitely seem like there is more than the crew says. To make matters worse, another AZ flight my wife took today was delayed too (that has nothing to do with this delay now), and because of this she´s starving and the cabin crew doesn´t care...

I would think that the excessive amount of time it has taken has more to do with the strikes that have been all over the news today

If so, why would the crew not tell so? In any way not positive news about that airline, who never was any good in a long time. AZ has grown their own trouble indeed, I would have wished them to be closed down.

G'day

I have been sitting in a BA plane at Milan's Linate airport recently for in excess of 2 hours while luggage was being unloaded and searched for a piece that did not belong on that flight. After an hour or so BA staff decided to serve drinks, each got a plastic beaker of warm water - cheers.

At the time there was no strike, nevertheless the search operation did not seem very efficient or organized but rather dysfunctional.

Goes without saying that I missed my ORK connection at LHR, but I got my bags on the final destination, four hours later than expected though.

Cheers

Peter
