I am a scuba diver travelling to thailand with emirates.
I have my scuba gear in my luggage, wrap the bag at the airport and landing in bangkok i see that the wrapping was cut off and my luggage zip is open.
My sxuba regulator is missing.
I do the report to the baggage claim service and after that nobody contacted me until todaynso 1 month later to say the following. I copy and paste the email of mr imdadullah afiz from customer affair..
If i listen to him it is my responsability... The scuba gear as it is valuable it is not taken in charge by airline it is not their responsability.. So i should maybe put my tank, suit, regulator, fin, mask and bcd on me in the cabin the next time i.flight..
