HASu Terminal 2 of London-Heathrow airport, chaos. The structure’s baggage sorter suffered a major breakdown on Friday, June 17, leaving hundreds of passengers pissed off. Affecting check-in and baggage delivery services, this technical malfunction forced many travelers to leave without their belongings. The latter had been informed that they could not find their personal effects for 48 hours. As a result, astonishing pictures show a tide of suitcases piled up inside the “Queen’s Terminal”, as reported by the Euronews site.
“Welcome to London-Heathrow. I am leaving for Delhi. Stopping the baggage system. Not a single bag loaded in any flight. We can get our things tomorrow or the day after. London temperature: 31 degrees. That of passengers: 51 “, ironically a customer from his Twitter account. Sunday, June 19, the problem still does not seem to be resolved.

On social networks, disgruntled passengers testify to a computer failure still in progress. “What a nightmare this flight from Terminal 2 of London-Heathrow to Dublin! Most of the passengers haven’t collected their luggage, and I’m one of them. Can someone tell us where our suitcases are? asks a deprived user. For the time being, no response has been provided by the offending airport.
