"In response to a complaint about the luggage that was not received at the destination airport from one of the guests on behalf of Kaesang Pangarep, Batik Air apologizes for the inconvenience caused," said Corporate Communications Strategic of Lion Air, Danang Mandala Prihantoro in a written statement Monday, November 14, 2022.
"The results of the investigation in the form of recommendations or references obtained will be used (implemented) in order to improve the quality of service to guests," he said.
Previously, during a flight from Singapore to Surabaya with Batik Airlines, Kaesang's luggage did not land with him, and instead strayed all the way to the Kualanamu airport in Medan, North Sumatra.
This prompted him to post a somewhat sarcastic tweet thanking Batik Airlines for losing his luggage.
"Hooray, I took Batik Air to Surabaya but my baggage arrived safely at Kualanamu airport. Thank you Batik Air," Kaesang tweeted via Twitter account @kaesangp on Sunday afternoon, November 13, 2022.

Until now, it is still unclear what caused the incident that happened to President Jokowi's son and Kasesang even tweeted that he was waiting for his suitcase to return.
"Waiting for my luggage."
