Total Baggage Chaos in DXB 27 Feb.

Connected today via DXB to ZRH on A 380 ( full house )

- departure delay of 30 mins due to "missing freight"
- no info during the whole flight
- baggage claim at ZRH ran for 30 mins with bags sporadic delivered
. after 39 mins info that computer systems in DXB broke down and that 60% - 70% of bags were not loaded on ALL connecting flights
- stampede by approx. 300 pax towards 2 ( ! ) open DNATA missed baggage desks

How many bags are affected? Somebody mentionned that the chaos might be bigger than that with BA in Terrible 4 in LHR.

Any insights, we all felt completely left alone by EK

My EK406 was delayed nearly 3 hours then we took off with about 50 suitcases, the rest were left behind.

However we got loads of updates from our captain.

Similar situation at LHR for EK005 on the 28th. 2 hour wait at DXB with the same story and bags from EK415 from Sydney finally arrive 3pm 1st of March.

I would not have wanted to be a DNATA staff member that night
