Indian Influencer Slams Lufthansa For Losing Her Luggage; Says She Was Stranded In Venice

Travelling, though fun, can easily turn into a nightmare. Many people leave their homes and think they are heading for the adventure of a lifetime only to run into issues like flight delays or rescheduling, luggage problems, or other travel woes. Recently, an Indian influencer ran into an issue with Lufthansa which forced her to stay in Venice which proved to be quite costly. Here are all the details that you need to know about this.

Indian Influencer Slams Lufthansa

Indian influencer Tanya Khanijow was left stranded in Venice because Lufthansa failed to load her luggage from the Helsinki airport in Finland. Frustrated, she took to her social media and ranted about her experience.

She wrote on the micro-blogging website X (formerly, Twitter), that she has been extending her stay in Venice and that she never planned to be here for five days. The influencer also shared how expensive living in the city is proving to be as she is forced to spend some €182 (₹15,000) or €117 (₹10,000) per night.

She even shared a picture of the tiny room that she got for paying such a high price. She shared the post on the 6th of September and said that the airline called a day before to inform her that her luggage would be sent on the same day. But that was not to be.

Netizens Show Their Support

After the luggage failed to show up yet again, she contacted Lufthansa again and she was told that the luggage was not loaded yet again, forcing her to extend her expensive and unplanned stay yet again. The whole disruption seems to have caused significant inconvenience.

Many people poured words of sympathy and support in her comment section. Some even urged her to seek financial recompense from the airline. In one of the posts in the thread, she said that she was in Italy for three weeks but she never planned on staying only in Venice for so long.
