Airport Adventures: Cardiff Airport

by L/cpl Sykes

My luggage (consisting of my dirty washing) failed to arrive off the carousel and upon complaining it was missing I was told "Its not missing sir......it's gone to Düsseldorf"

"Cardiff airport has to be one of the worst in Britain. I arrived there on the short flight from Belfast on my way home on leave when I was in the Army. Its small, too far from the city of Cardiff to travel cheaply, and full of sour faced miserable Welsh people.

My luggage (consisting of my dirty washing) failed to arrive off the carousel and upon complaining it was missing I was told "Its not missing sir......it's gone to Düsseldorf". I was told it would be flown back to the UK and put on a courier the same day and delivered to my house immediately.

I was on leave for 7 days and as I left my house on the morning of my seventh day to fly back to Ireland it turned up. I checked it in at Cardiff, flew back to Belfast, and never saw it again. If you find it anywhere please let me know."
