Airlines affected included British Airways, American Airlines, Virgin Atlantic, Qantas, Emirates, and Iberia, among others, leaving passengers with no choice other than to pack essential items into their carry-on bags and continue on without their checked luggage.

Though the airport is still determining the exact cause of the issue and the total number of passengers affected, it was resolved by 9 a.m., with airport representatives urging customers who had to fly without their luggage to contact their airlines in order to retrieve their belongings.
