Man’s Clothes Completely Ripped To Shreds After Luggage Arrives At Airport
| Last updated
A man's clothes were left ripped to shreds after getting his bag back from his holiday.
The last few months of travel have been chaotic, to say the least.
With mass flight cancellations, lost baggage, and barely any staff for an entire airport bar, it's pretty hard to shock us.
Still, one Twitter user, @karen_nowland did just that, when she shared how her husband's clothes were left ripped to shreds in transit from Manchester to Colombo.
The couple were flying with Etihad airlines, with Karen tweeting the company: "Hey @etihad
Look what happened to my husband’s bag somewhere between Manchester and Colombo!! Why are you ignoring our emails to @EtihadHelp? My husband looks like a pirate. Not the tropical holiday look he had in mind."
Thankfully, Karen had a sense of humour about the whole thing and so did her fellow Twitter users, with one saying: "Some people pay a lot of money for that look."
While another said: "I am so so so sorry this happened to you but I sincerely thank you for taking and posting those photos! The pirate look gonna trend for sure!!"
A third said that the look was pretty on trend: "The similar dresses will be sold in Zara for $$$."
Someone else replied: "It's called fashion," and, to be fair, we wouldn't be surprised if we saw the same thing at Fashion Week soon.
Another said that the man was giving Tom Hanks in Castaway vibes: "Forget pirate; your husband looks like he’s lived on a deserted island," and we have to agree.
But, we guess the chaos is to be expected, as Manchester Airport, like others across the UK has faced complete chaos in recent weeks.
As managing director of Manchester Airport, Karen Smart resigned from his post in April.
The resignation came as piles of suitcases were reportedly left in terminals and holiday-goers opted to leave their baggage at the airport opting to just head home.
Councillor Pat Karney said that the issues were due to management 'totally underestimat[ing] the recovery time of the airport' after the Covid pandemic.
"Two million people went through the airport in February [and] in the previous year, it was 70,000, so you had to plan ahead," he added.
"They should have seen all this.
"They should have known the recovery was going to be very quick."
Even so, it seems that airports everywhere are struggling to cope and Karen Nowland's baggage mishap seems like the most recent example.
