Lufthansa passenger sees his luggage lagging behind during the flight from Munich to Manchester

Lufthansa flight crew tells passenger that his suitcase is on the plane … even though he can SEE it on the runway – and they leave without a flight to Manchester

  • Karn Rateria saw his suitcase left on the asphalt in Munich
  • He pointed it out to the Lufthansa staff but was told that all the luggage was on board
  • The plane left without it and he didn't get the bag back for nearly 36 hours

A furious Lufthansa passenger saw his luggage stay behind in Munich – even though he could see it through the airplane window.

Karn Rateria saw his suitcase sitting on the asphalt for a flight to Manchester on Sunday.

But when he pointed out to the crew, Lufthansa staff insisted that all baggage was loaded, he said.

As a result, the plane left with the luggage left behind and did not get it back for nearly 36 hours.

& # 39; Uhm Lufthansa you left my bag on the asphalt!, & # 39; wrote the passenger in an angry tweet.

& # 39; I told the crew and they just said the loading is complete. I can see the bag. And we leave without it. What is this even? & # 39;

He went on: & # 39; It was very annoying to know the entire flight that my bag was on the asphalt in Munich. & # 39;

The mistake was especially annoying because he had arrived at the airport more than two hours early and was one of the first passengers to board, he said.

The plane was still near the terminal when he saw the bag, he added, meaning he didn't have to return to pick up his luggage.

The Lufthansa passenger was eventually reunited with the suitcase (photo) almost 36 hours after it was left in Munich

In response to his tweet, Lufthansa blamed the error for a & # 39; loss of the baggage system in Frankfurt & # 39; – although the flight left 200 miles away in Munich.

Once arrived in Manchester, Karn filed a complaint about lost luggage and the bag was eventually transferred to another flight.

On Monday evening, he posted a photo of the suitcase and said he was happy to be reunited with it.

& # 39; For the people who laughed, I will come to you once I am unpacked, & # 39; he joked.

& # 39; I hope none of you have to watch how your bag is left behind and can't help it, & # 39; he said.
