BA First Helicopter Ride - QC [Quebec, Canada] Lawsuit

Posted without comment. Decision on BA’s motion to dismiss and transfer to other jurisdiction. Both motions denied and case will proceed to trial.

Factual basis is international tariff (Canada or USA) includes provision that free helicopter ride given to First Class passengers arriving at JFK. Agreed facts are that plaintiff (myself) requested service and was denied.

Rather than post links without comment could you elaborate and summarise the link in line with a Flyertalk rules?

Then perhaps you shoud have actually spelt that out right from the start under the thread titles should be meaningful rule.

Along with the fact you have a personal interest in this case.

Thank God there are no statements in the “international tariff” regarding the provision of clean seats. We could all sue for a lifetime supply of wet wipes.

Unconvinced the lack of clarity of the location is a big deal, since it could be easily figured out by clicking on the link. And “QC” is the common notation for the province, though I appreciate it could be confusing in an international context. Certainly something to consider for the future. As to my personal interest, I’ve updated the OP previously to make that clear.

Have I entered a parallel universe here. Where does it say that helicopter transfers are included for F passengers? This service was demised long ago. I took it in the mid 90s.

Bolding mine.

OP; where is it stated, as fact, you get a free helicopter ride?

The DOT doesn’t post tariffs online, unfortunately. However, here is the rule showing as valid on the date of travel. This was received directly from the DOT.

According to the original link the OP posted:

it is based on a “single sentence contained in a provision of a tariff filed with the Canadian Transportation Agency in 1993”;”

Have you included the lack of free cigarettes in your law suit?
