Today, my boyfriend and I are going on vacation to Panama. When we landed, our suitcases were missing and the airline has no clue where they are. It’s 32 degrees Celsius outside, and all we have is our winter jackets and a pair of jeans. FML

A pair of jeans between you? That's unfortunate. You'll either have to take turns wearing them, or take a leg each and walk around like a four-legged monster.

it was cold where they were flying from, so they had their winter clothes on. Then they arrived in their warm destination with the impression they would have suitcases full of shorts and t-shirts to change into aaand - cue FML

just contract your travel insurance they have budgets for this you are allowed to spend (do make sure you have the official papers from the airport that your suitcase has gone missing usualy a PIR-file) and they will declare this money with the organisation you're traveling with. usualy it is approximately 50 euro a day a person to purchase basic needs like a toothbrush, bikini, shorts etc. it sucks but don't let it spoil your holiday :)

No, they don't have shops in Panama. If you want anything, throw a coin into the wishing well and scream your demand loudly. Then it magically appears.
The last time I tried to order porn was a little awkward. It kept giving me a female cow, when I asked for reverse cowgirl sex style porn. So yeah, it's a little tricky but it works most of the time.

I live in Panama! It's honestly really hot when it doesn't rain, but thankfully we've just entered the rainy season so if you know which places to freeload AC from (read: malls, stores, etc) then you're pretty much okay. Contact your flight agency ASAP before the employee(s) that stole your bags turn up mia. Also if you have little cash on you, Albrook Mall is the best to get the cheapest of clothes. Cheers!

It's probably a common occurrence in Panama, if a native assumes this is the reason. I've heard that that happens in a lot of the less well off countries. Especially if the scan reveals expensive items like scuba gear or electronics.

#10 it is what most likely happened, actually. I've unfortunately had my bags "misplaced" several times, once actually stolen. If they don't get the opportunity to, our bags are taken back to us mysteriously missing their locks.

Probably so they don't freeze on the way to the airport in their home country?
You know, depending on the hemisphere you live in, the season might be different from yours. The southern hemisphere is in mid winter right now.
