Have you been abused by British Airways?

Modern air travel is stressful enough without the abuse that some airlines inflict on passengers. If you are a legitimate victim of airline abuse and reasonable attempts at redress have been ignored or refused by the airline, I encourage you to submit a complaint via the CEDR to send a clear message to the airline that this behaviour will not be tolerated. The process is free if you are successful or £25 if you are unsuccessful. Please let me know about your success stories!

Legal Advice

If you need legal help, I haven't used Bott & Co Solicitors personally but they have some good advice on their website about claiming compensation from airlines and have a no-win no-fee no-risk guarantee.

British Airways has one of the worst track records When it comes to losing luggage. According to an article in the Independent from February 2008, "British Airways lost more baggage per flight last year than almost any other airline in Europe."

Figures for 2007 released by the Air Transport Users Council show that British Airways delayed 26.5 bags per 1,000 compared to a European-wide average of 16.6 bags. The only airline in Europe with a worse track record was TAP Air Portugal (27.8 delayed bags per 1,000).

The article further states that British Airways record is getting worse with an additional 3.5 bags lost per 1,000 in 2007 compared to the previous year.

I'll never fly BA again. They charged me $800 when I had to cancel one leg of my flight due to a change. And they routed me to an Indian call center where they clearly do not speak intelligible English!
