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.

The Daily Mail reports that two British Airways pilots died within days each other, both citing in-flight toxic oil fumes as the cause of their ill-health.

Apparently it's common for pilots to don oxygen masks several times per week during flights due to poor air quality and there are no air quality monitoring systems on British Airways or other airline aircraft.

Before his death, BA Pilot Richard Westgate instructed his lawyers to sue BA for alleged health and safety breaches.

BA Pilot Karen Lysakowska also wrote to BA threatening to take legal action over ongoing air contamination incidents.

British Airways may be liable under the health regulations because they fail to monitor the on-board air quality.

There is no mention of whether passengers are also at risk.
