Oh no - so sorry to hear that, STG. Join the chaos club. Kahoosier arrived on Tuesday (after 12 hours of delay hell in Schipol) and there's still no sign of his luggage or even any indication of where it might be sad smiley

Glad to know he made it - we can compare wardrobe deficiencies. Though nothing can excuse my hair.

Well, my bag didn’t make it past my connecting flight to Heathrow. I waited at the baggage carousel for nearly an hour, where a sign read Bags Arriving for my flight. Not a single bag came up during that time, but the sign changed to Bags Delivered. Two disinterested guys working at the enquiry counter, a long wait to be told I ‘should’ have it by Tuesday. Hundreds of bags piled randomly throughout the baggage hall but hardly any people there, nearly deserted, nobody claiming them. And periodic announcements that unclaimed bags will be destroyed ‘for safety.’ I kept most of my essentials in carry on but this is a big drag.

Ouch that sucks. There is no excuse for that now with all the technology in use. A long time ago I was on a TWA flight from Amsterdam to NY on TWA (I said it was a long time ago) where they mixed up the bags and my flight had the Amsterdam to Washington DC bags and that flight had ours. Hope you can get what you need and maybe even get what you want to get through the next few days.

The entrance for Diamond VIP would seem to be gate 17 (the Garden Entrance) on the west side of the area. That"s where the Elton John Diamond VIP people were lining up this morning. Also checks out with the official map.

However, when I asked the staff just now, they told me Gate 10, which is towards the South Entrance. Go figure. I think that person just had wrong info.

How many people were lining up there and what time was that? I'm trying to figure out how early to get there tomorrow for gold circle east ticket

For Elton, it was about a dozen people in the Diamond VIP line at 10.30 AM. I didn't check any other gates.

Ok that's cool, thank you for the info smiling smiley

So sorry about the bag, STG! Happened to me and others once on arrival at Heathrow from JFK, when going to O2 for the show. They were delivered about a day later. Hope yours come forth soon.

Good luck to Kahoosier too, yikes.

So the days of the airlines delivering your lost bags to your front door are over, lol? I remember that was actually a thing! .. But sorry about your bag Torontogirl, hope you have a great show however!

That is bloody awful STG. Hope your hand luggage is enough to get by for the next few days and you get your checked in luggage back soon. See you later tonight.

I have a car tommorow (I have had to do alot of begging) and am good to go! Train strikes won't stop me. I have no idea where I am going to park (I'll be looking Hammersmith/Shep bush area) but I'll find somewhere. Roll on tommorow!

Same as me I've had a nightmare with car hire companies all week, they want £1000 deposit or credit card.
Borrowed my sisters car and added the insurance £25. Now I need to find somewhere to park, OH and I don't have a ticket for the concert yet.

Seems like things are a bit lax there tonight. I know 2 people who got in without their barcodes getting scanned. Some folks are getting "miracle tickets" using a phrase from the old Grateful Dead days.

For info, I went to the Elton gig tonight at Hyde Park and used the barcode on the AXS app. They scanned it with no problems and they never mentioned the BST app.

Good morning, London!

I'll take another recon walk to Hyde Park and see how many people are lining up at 8:30 AM smiling smiley

Then it's time for a pub breakfast and just chill for a while before we get ready to enter. Plan is to go in sometime around 1-2 PM, we're not going to line up.

See you tonight in Diamond VIP!
