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 Fail After Fail After Fail

Power Plug

Hot on the heels of an IT disaster in May that cost British Airways around £80 million, planned strike action by BA staff is set to disrupt BA flights yet again during July.

It's not especially clear which flights will be affected or even if passengers will be compensated.

The Independent seems to think industrial action can be classed as an "extraordinary circumstance" by the airline so that they can deny claims while MoneySavingExpert.com reports that the Civil Aviation Authority deems it unlikely that a planned strike by the Airline's own staff could be classed as an "extraordinary circumstance" as the airline should have time to make alternative arrangements for passengers.

Finally, the results of the 2017 World Airline Awards by Skytrax have been announced this week with Qatar Airways in the number one spot and British Airways placed in 40th position (one place ahead of easyJet). British Airways last won the award in 2006.

British Airways Mixed Fleet Strike Update (July 2017)

On 30th June, one day before strike action was set to begin, British Airways finally made an announcement about which flights they expect to be cancelled or delayed.

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!
