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.

BA Cost Cutting for Short Term Gain

Terminal 5 Check-in

Brian Lait has good insight into British Airways management and has contributed a new article, BA cutting costs for a quick buck in the Cyprus Mail.

"Avaricious" is a new word to me but perfectly personifies the current BA management who seem determined to cut costs and maximise profits for themselves and their shareholders.

While the current management have driven BA down to the 40th most popular airline, and despite the numerous BA disasters of 2017, BA continue to make a profit.

As long as the shareholders are happy, the travelling public are still willing to support the "National Airline" (which frankly is astounding to me) and assuming they aren't cutting corners on safety, then nothing seems likely to change at least in the short term.

I have never encountered such atrocious customer service. The Civil Avation Authority could not help me, because they have no legal power themselves over BA. So, take your claim to the County Court (a small fee), or contact CEDR. BA are currently ...
