The airport encountered a problem with its baggage system in Terminal 5 on Saturday morning, which is believed to have lasted a few hours.

Some said they were told to keep essentials in hand luggage because their bags may “not reach” their destination.


Heathrow spokesperson said Granthshala The issues meant “a small number of people departing from Terminal 5 may have traveled without their baggage”.

Apologizing for the disruption, he said: “We are working closely with British Airways to reunite passengers with their baggage as quickly as possible.”

The issue was resolved at around 10.30 a.m. on Saturday – the day schools in England and Wales broke down for half-heartedness.

A man who flew with British Airways said in a tweet on Saturday that his luggage had not been delivered to his destination.

Others shared a message they received from British Airways, warning them that a problem with the Heathrow system meant their bags “cannot travel”.

Passengers were told to fill up a form if their luggage was delayed and to procure the receipts for essential items during this period.

A woman who received the message from the airline tweeted, “Told to keep hand luggage as bags may not arrive.” “Happy half term!”

Passengers also took to social media to complain of long queues as they were on half-baked leave, with one user saying they were “excessive”.

British Airways spokesperson said Granthshala: “For a few hours this morning, Heathrow Airport’s baggage system encountered a problem that caused some customers’ baggage to be delayed on their flight.”

He added: “We are doing everything we can to get their stuff back to them as quickly as possible.”

British Airways told Granthshala Customers traveling later in the day were contacted as a precaution.
