Manchester news Holiday nightmare as suitcases with bank cards, clothes and medication vanish Manchester united news
PremierLeague-News.Com - Louise Ali dropped off her suitcases the night before an early morning flight - but they never arrived
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! A family is facing the prospect of abandoning their two-week trip after their suitcases for a holiday in Mallorca vanished - with bank cards, clothes and medication inside. Louise Ali believes TUI 'couldn't care less' after her family's suitcases failed to arrive in Palma following their flight from Manchester on Wednesday morning (August 3). She is supposed to be enjoying a sun-drenched holiday in the popular destination for a fortnight with husband Hassan Ali, 38, and their two young sons Haris, eight, and Raff, two. But with the cases disappearing with credit and debit cards, a pre-paid holiday money card and vital treatment cream for little Raff's eczema, Louise says she will now have to come back home. Louise was able to drop her suitcases off on Tuesday night in advance of the family's 6.20am flight, although she had to queue for three hours to wait for the drop off. The family returned to Manchester Airport at 3am the next day after a sleepless night and got through security, but their flight was delayed for two-and-a-half hours.

Having been due to land in Palma at around 10am, the family finally reached the Mallorca airport at around 12.45pm - but their bags never arrived. "It's been horrific from start to finish," Louise, 37, told the Manchester Evening News . "I got to the desk at Palma and there was no help. They said it could come on the next flight, tomorrow, in a few days. They said this is happening all the time at Manchester - don't worry. The family travelled from Manchester to Palma on Tui (Image: AP) "TUI said to call back after six days - what do I do for six days? It took me eight hours to get hold of somebody and they said there was nothing they could do." Her luggage included a handbag which contained her bank cards, credit cards and a pre-paid travel money card. As well as clothes and shoes, it also included steroid cream to treat her son's eczema, which could not be carried as cabin baggage as it was over 100ml.

. "There's no sight of these cases anywhere, they have vanished," said Louise. "You wouldn't mind if someone said they were looking into it for you, they will try to find it, but it's nothing - radio silence. They couldn't care less. "We can't go out now. They said to go and find some [steroid cream] from somewhere and we could claim it back but we've got to wait for three weeks in case they find our cases. I've got no clothes, no shoes, nothing.
The luggage was handled at Manchester by Swissport (Image: PA) Louise is now left regretting her decision to keep her cards in her luggage, rather than taking them on board. She added: "I was just rushing, it's the perfect storm. I'm kicking myself for being so stupid. I can't stay here because I've got nothing. I've got to go home. "There are probably loads of us [in this situation]. The person we spoke to at Palma said Manchester was the worst for it, there are so many bags going missing all the time." A spokesperson for TUI said the company was 'very sorry' to hear about the luggage issues which have affected the family. The spokesperson added: "We are urgently investigating this with our baggage handler to find out exactly what happened and our team in resort will be in touch with the customer as soon as possible today to help resolve the issue." Swissport, which handled Louise's luggage at Manchester Airport, has been approached for comment.
