It’s a beautiful day in Hong Kong and we are stressing over a ball.
As far as I know, NAIA is the only airport that X-rays your luggage before you can even enter the airport.
On Wednesday, the guy who checks the monitor spotted my 7-year-old son’s basketball inside the luggage and said we would have to leave it behind as “air” is not allowed inside the luggage. WTF.
My son started to stress and Jeroen was frantically thinking of how to remove the “air” from the basketball.
I told them not to worry as I knew an airport escort who could keep the ball for us until we returned to Manila.
Upon hearing that (with the traffic building up behind us) the X-ray dude let us go.
So now my dear son and husband are stressing over how to remove the air as we return with the ball to Manila on Easter Sunday.
Is there anyone in Cathay Pacific who could verify if we can take this ball home as it is?
We are trying to call Cathay, but the phone in this hotel is not user-friendly. It is stressing us more trying to get a call through Cathay Pacific.
Please leave a comment if you know whether balls are not allowed to travel on planes.
Thank you in advance and I shall miss this, Hong Kong Disneyland.
