Passengers who boarded Dana Airline from Lagos to Abuja on Friday protested at the airport following the airline’s abandonment of luggage in Lagos.
The protest started with passengers who boarded Dana’s first flight 9J353 (7:00 a.m.) when they arrived Abuja only to discover that their luggage were left behind, without prior notification.
While the 7:00 a.m. passengers were still waiting for their luggage after being assured it would arrive with the 11:00 a.m. 9J355 flight, that aircraft landed without the luggage of either the first or second flights passengers.
This development angered the over 300 passengers as they stormed the airline’s counter, turning off the computers.
The airline employees feigned ignorance of the development, appealing to passengers to wait for the flight that would leave Lagos by 4:00 p.m. for their luggage.
