An airport worker in the United Kingdom has lost his job after a man arrived in Cyprus to find the words “c–t stop checking in late” written on his seven-month-old’s suitcase.

The man, 40-year-old Mario Lucas, is a resident of Cyprus, and was flying from London’s Stansted airport to Paphos with his wife and son.

He said he had checked in for the flight around an hour and a half before it was due to take off.

Upon arrival in Cyprus, Lucas said his wife “noticed the writing straight away”.

He added that calling his seven-month-old son a c–t is “rude and outrageous”.
