An Arab student in Abu Dhabi is demanding Dh100,000 damages from a regional airline after losing his baggage twice and missing a chance to register in the university last year, a newspaper reported on Wednesday.

The student said he could not find his baggage on arrival in an Asian country last year and that the airlines company failed to help him although the bag contained valuable items, Emarat Alyoum Arabic language daily said.

A few months later, the student travelled to an Arab country on the same airlines to register in the university but could not after he again lost his baggage which contained his education certificates, it said.

“Although the company recovered his baggage 10 days later, he could not enroll in the university…he said such a situation caused him to lose one year in the university…during trials yesterday, the student demanded Dh100,000 damages and a free air ticket to travel again to enroll in the university.”
