Our flight back home was delayed for almost 1.5 hours. I told Mom that if I have a choice, I won’t choose any flight that land in KLIA2. Why?
- We had to walk for more than 30 mins from the gate to the immigration area.
- It was like a warehouse sale at the immigration area. There were massively long queues at both officer-manned counters and the auto gate while officers at the foreigner section were enjoying.
- Another 10-15 mins from exiting the immigration to the pick-up area.
Since we were delayed, we were kind of rushing out to the pick-up area. We were supposed to land at 21:45 but with the delay, we landed at 23:30.
Dad came to pick us up. It was kind of a chaos around the pick up area with so many travellers waiting for their pick-up and cars waiting for their friends, family or whoever.
We dropped off Amanda and Ann first. Once we reached home and Dad brought in all the luggages and bags, we realised that we had left my luggage at the pick-up area. Dad drove us back to the airport again, hoping that someone will hand it over to the airport staffs.
On the way back to the airport, I was trying to figure out how we left out the luggage. I remembered pushing the luggage out to the outer pick-up area and placed it next to our car when Ann was asking me to open the door. It was locked from inside. After that, I straight hopped into the car thinking that all luggages are in the car.
Once we reached the airport, I went to the Information Counter and the staff asked me to go up to the Information Counter at Level 3. There, the officer made a call and asked me to describe my luggage. Then he told us that my luggage was handed to the immigration counter and he asked us to go to the Information Counter at the check-in area.
I spoke to the lady at the counter and then I saw my luggage. She initially wanted me to tell her what I have inside the luggage. They had scanned it earlier and couldn’t open it as it was wrapped and strapped. Luckily I had the luggage strip sticker with me. They confirmed the details and handed me my luggage.
