Vietnam Airlines flight from Hanoi to Siem Reap via Luang Prabang - just one of those little turbo prop planes with 70 passengers - but a full flight to LP and about 60 on the leg from LP to REP. About a dozen in our situation - transiting in LP, the rest joining the flight in Luang Prabang.
We arrived in Siem Reap and got through the Visa on arrival and waited for our luggage - and waited - and waited - and waited..... and we're still waiting.
It seems that none of the luggage for any of the passengers on the LP > REP leg was loaded... not a single piece.
I can understand one case going astray, or even on a big flight, one of those metal bins going missing - but a whole plane load of luggage? .. surely that is a first.
Their excuse.(from the increasingly frazzled lady in the lost luggage office in REP ... "it was a little plane so not enough room for all the bags" ..now that is priceless!
So off we go to the market to get some knickers, a swimming costume and something clean to wear tomorrow while we wait for the missing bags to arrive. Glad I have travel insurance.
