Sometimes it isn’t easy to know whether while you are busy admiring so many things around you, there are some very weird things going on in the background.
So while I was travelling and enjoying the view outside the Hong Kong airport during the transit, how was I to know that when I would reach the final destination, I would see the items inside my bag soaked in water?
Was the checked-in bag dipped in the South China Sea during transit – for may be some “ablutions”? Or was it simply tossed carelessly in some area with water? I have no clue!
On reaching the hotel after almost 24 hours of journey, 1.5 hrs of standing in the immigration checks queue, and 45 minutes of cab ride, all I wanted to do was get some sleep and is that what I was doing – no sir – I was busy drying out stuff – with the sunlight coming in through the window, the blow dryer and the iron!
Sounds like a cinderella story – isn’t it – with the airlines playing the role of the cruel stepmother ?
And the weirdest thing is that the airlines was not some low cost carrier – it’s a supposedly five star airlines!
I wonder how the stars are granted and who gives them!
Also, one more weird thing – they don’t assign an incident number when you raise the complaint on their website! Cool – huh?
