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.

Jorma Heikkilä from Finland has set his BA complaint to music via the Baltic Moonshine Band!

I hope this goes viral as it seems to be the only way to get through to British Airways "Customer Service".

The Lyrics:

British Airways really turned our holidays to crap
We bought their bogus tickets and we fell into their trap
They gave us sixty minutes to run a ninety minute race
And when we couldn't make it, we had to pay twice

Their customer relations would like to be the best
The best in the whole world, much better than the rest
But all they really told was how they feel so sad for me
And wished to see us soon again that means more currency

It's undertandable to collect money where you can
Well the petrol price is high and staff wages should be banned
Every now and then someone will fall into this trap
So managers and stock holders can open a new cab

Yes British Airways really turned our holidays to crap
They showed us how to steal and they left us feeling sad
I wish them really something, something I won't now tell
But I'm afraid the word I'm thinking for it is not well

Some time ago, I cheerfully signed up for the British Airways Visa card, with its offer of 100,000 miles and - if I charged $30,000 to the card in the first year - a free companion ticket.  I guess I should have listened to my old ma's sage advice ...

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!
