On Wednesday, the AI 555 flight took off from the Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi and its destination was Amsterdam Airport. While the passenegrs on that flight reached the European city and deboarded the flight safely, they were stunned to hear that their check-in baggage and luggage were not offloaded in Amsterdam. The airline failed to deliver the luggage on time.

Even the thought of not getting bags after landing at an airport scares us. We can only imagine how harrowing it was for everyone who did not get their luggage. It was indeed a tiring journey from Delhi in India to Amsterdam in the Netherlands. From the most basic things such as clothes to the most important things such as medicines, our bags carry almost everything that we need at any point in time in a new city. And not receiving such crucial belongings at the right time is a terrifying experience.

Sources of Air India revealed the reason behind why the airline did not deliver the bags on time. The airline could not manage to offload the baggage of around 40 passengers on Wednesday as there was a technical problem, according to a report by Deccan Herald.
