Damaged Luggage

According to Norlisa’s Facebook post, the ordeal began at Jakarta Airport on April 28, where the family checked in eight pieces of luggage, including three oversized items marked as fragile and containing archery equipment.

The flight, originally scheduled to depart at 6:50 PM, was delayed, taking off at 8:10 PM with fewer than 70 passengers aboard.

Upon arrival at Kuala Lumpur International Airport around 11:20 PM, the family proceeded to the luggage collection area only to find six of their bags and a plastic package, while two other luggage were missing.

“Check the luggage area yourself.”

Norlisa recounts the frustration of dealing with airport staff who seemed indifferent to their situation when trying to find the two missing bags.

“They raised their voices, telling me to check the oversized luggage area myself,” she explained.

After more searching and questioning, the couple managed to recover one bow case after waiting for more than 2hours, but the other remained missing.

Exacerbating their plight, Norlisa’s 10-year-old daughter, Karisya, was devastated to learn that her archery equipment was irrevocably damaged.

No response yet

As of noon on April 29, the family had yet to receive a direct response from the airline, although an email confirmed receipt of their complaint at 3:02 AM.

In her post, Norlisa tagged the airline, urging for a prompt resolution.

The affected family now awaits further communication from the airline, hoping for not just compensation, but also a more caring approach to customer service in the future.
