Lost Luggage to Karachi

I’ve only heard of this on movies and all but I can’t believe this happened to me. Apparently, the guys at Pakistan International Airways lost my luggage during my 50-minute domestic trip from Islamabad to Lahore.

I was staring at the luggage carousel and my beloved luggage never came out of the hole. Argh, the dreaded time has come. When I reported it to the airport authorities, they said mine could have been misplaced during cargo and it might have ended at Karachi, with a flight around that same time.

Well, I’m heading back home now and was fortunate to find free wifi at the waiting lounge of Suvarnabhumi (pronounced su-war-na-boom) Airport in Bangkok. All I have with me is my backpack which, luckily, contains my laptop and my camera but a week’s worth of clothes is lost somewhere in Pakistan.


I will be flying to Jakarta next week and if that luggage doesn’t reach Manila in time, I will be doing some really heavy shopping (pray not!). *huhuhu*

Hay, such is the life of a lonely traveler. Sh*t happens.

Got all your messages. I’m on it. Ok, time for boarding.

    You are entitled to damages right? I lost my luggage once in Chicago. I got $1,000 for it after filing a claim in Manila. Good thing the cost inside the luggage was only worth $200 or less.

    Didn’t I tell you that? Secure all important stuff in your carryon so in case the luggage got misplaced, all you have to worry is the replacement.

    Next time you board, see to it that the luggage got the tags for your destination esp. if you have connecting flights.

    I supposed that you have one again in going to Jakarta. That would be via Singapore.

    Ingat din si Jakarta, diyan nabutas yong aking LV bag. Akala may lamang mamahalin, yon pala, pagkain.

    Even if it is not lost and it will come back to you, You have the right to file for some money to the plane company.

    Yep, nothing really valuable there. I still have my backpack which has my dSLR camera and laptop with me.

    @ Jazzy

    Yup, puro labada and all of my favorite ones too.

    @ Dex & Mocs

    Yup, I filed a claim and hopefully they act on it and I get the stuff this week. Otherwise, I’m off to do some serious shopping.
