This is true for *most* airlines, but it's not what AA seems to state in the CoC, website, or boarding pass.

This is the answer. Now if only I could convince AA of this truth...

Nicely written piece.

I am surprised though that the airline is willing to discuss the travel of another passenger so freely with a third party?

He signed over representative authority to me as he is in the US but I can deal with it in the UK

Their callous indifference makes me hope for punitive damages.

If you have an address in England, can easily deal with it using MCOL ; there is little chance that it would try to defend it once clearly detailed with the evidence that you have read terms etc and can reference it

AA does seem to be one of the carriers that is reluctant to pay up under EC261

Just do make sure that you have initially lodged a claim at [email protected] and had it rejected there first

Wasn't sure whether you had sent it to the specific EC261 claim email address. If you have, then respond back to that emai address clearly setting out the terms of why it owes it one last time together with the warning that if payment is not received that you will take action without further notice ; I can't see it trying to defend a claim once lodged and it knows that you arn't bluffing

hmm I definitely havenít sent anything to a specific claim address, Iíll look into that... although I have been sending the last few emails to every executive listed on the elliott.org site, so I cannot imagine itís gone unseen by the whole lot.

I think the issue is we are claiming for Ä600 on article 7, both his denied flight segment (300) and his rebooked flight (303) for article 8, and a hotel and food and bus (£200) for article 9, which totals $1545. they are fighting extra hard

Send the claim to [email protected] - if the people managing that email still refuse, then start proceedings - you do need to direct the claim to the right people, not just scattergun around addresses found on the internet
