Emirates Air Lines / complaint of jewelry theft in checked in baggage.

1 United Arab Emirates Review updated:

Sub: - complaint of jewelry theft in checked in baggage.

I was traveling by emirates flight no ek & ndash; 502 dubai & ndash; mumbai on 16 august. I have checked in the big 32 kg baggage initially. But before boarding the plane the emirates officer fixed a tag on my hand carry luggage and took it away from me. The tag no given to me for this bag was ek 265731 with barcode.

On arrivalat mumbai airport I got my baggage with the lock in place. After coming home when I opened the lock and the bag it was found that the following items were missing from it :-
• four gold bangles : - weight 27 grams with the receipt.
• one set of earrings : - small baby earrings.
• one titan edge watch.
This matter is serious as I have a doubt on the baggage handling staff at dubai airport, they have the access to see x-ray of the baggage and they picked up all the valuables from my bag.

    I recently returned from a trip to Dubai. One of my suitcases never arrived at my final destination. The airline can't even trace whether it left Dubai airport. It was a suitcase with most of my expensive shopping. I suspect my bag was stolen since I opened it infront of a porter who are known to be lookouts to inform the baggage handlers which bag to steal. I just find it strange that my 4 other pieces arrived and the one piece that had the expensive items didn't. I would accept perhaps it got lost if airline can tell me that yes it did leave Dubai airport but they can't. I have heard from many others with similar experiences. I think this is a real shame for Dubai. I plan to on writing to the tourism minister to complain about the number of thefts occuring at this airport. I wouldn't consider vacationing in Dubai again because of this experience. I encourage everyone who has has similar experience at Dubai airport or with Emirates airline to write to him as well. Maybe if enough people write he would consider taking action.
