NEWLY-WEDS claim their honeymoon was ruined after their luggage arrived two days before they flew home.

Stuart and Kirstie Watson, of Thorney Close, were left without vital medication and unable to dine in the hotel restaurant.

They have hit out at airline Air France for spoiling what should have been five days of romance in Rome.

Their luggage never made it to the Italian capital with them on Thursday, April 5, because the airline left it in France’s Charles de Gaulle Airport.

Air France said it would be delivered on the next available flight later that evening.

Instead, Stuart and Kirstie spent the next three days chasing their suitcase, which contained antibiotics for Stuart’s chest infection and prescribed painkillers for Kirstie after a serious car crash last year.

The newly-weds, whose parents bought them the break as a present, had to spend most of their dream honeymoon wearing the clothes they arrived in and eating supermarket snacks.

Stuart, 33, said: “Air France have asked us to send in details of our emergency expenses.

“We’ve sent details off and are awaiting a response.

“It was meant to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience and it was spoilt.

“It is time that me and my wife will never get back again.

“That is what angers and frustrates us.

“The whole honeymoon was ruined and the way we were treated by Air France was just unbelievable.”

The couple, who married in March after meeting at work, blew their honeymoon budget trying to track down their possessions.
