I've had to buy new clothes and toiletries for me and my kids as most of it was in our bags. "The luggage still hasn't arrived and I have had nothing in the way of compensation for all the things I've had to buy since we've been back. They have told me it could take up to seven days but I don't understand why it's taking so long."
