  1. Shocking they'd be so lenient. Please keep us posted.
  2. @bahbahman That's very good. In due course, you should ask for High Court Bailiffs. Just make sure -beforehand- that they actually have something to seize in Heathrow. Please keep us posted.
  3. @bahbahman Any updates? Did they file an acknowledgement or service, a full defence, or just ignored the citation?
  4. Good, Aeromexico should pay what is duly owed. If you have questions or need help down the line, please don't hesitate to ask. Also, please do keep us updated! Precedent can be really valuable.
  5. I would wholeheartedly agree with the fact that involving solicitors will cost more than 1,000 pounds. If she cannot start proceedings on her own as a LIP, then she would need to take a more passive (but, alas, long) approach.
  6. I think she's being conned by the "executor", especially due to the ill will between the two. If I were in her position, I would take the executor to court, but different strokes for different folks, I suppose.
  7. You can draft the letter before action yourself and send it against the individual that's not giving you clear responses. No need to involve solicitors at this stage. I would recommend you do it today, start maintaining a paper trail.
  8. Andyorch, Santander Mexico has decided to issue a credit in my favour but it looks like Aeromexico might contest this "chargeback" with VISA, which will take 6 months and then there's a chance they can re-bill me. Should I pre-emptively sue Aeromexico?
  9. Anney: send the executor a letter before action (LBA). State clearly you want a response of exactly what's "holding her" and why she has not carried out the duties as an executor. Give her 14 days, send it via registered post if possible. If no joy, I would proceed and sue.
  10. Andy, I managed to get Santander Mexico to start an "investigation" of the case, but they said it will take them 2 months to make a decision on whether they can get my money back or not. Clearly not a chargeback, as you see. If Aeromexico fights this and eventually we go to court, I really do hope this will help me, because essentially I am letting Aeromexico enjoy my money for 2 extra months without any legal recourse...
  11. I could not get any insurance to cover this, due to the FCO travel advisories, and Aeromexico is not part of ATOL. I guess I can try and contact Santander UK and see if something pans out. Do you think my prospects at court would be bleak?
  12. I know I should have used a UK Credit Card -- been banging my head against the wall since then. I did it because, well, that's where I'm from. Nonetheless, I intend to pursue this in court and then claim that any forced arbitration agreement would violate The Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999.
  13. Yes, it's a Visa card from a large mexican bank -- Santander Mexico. Much to my chagrin, Santander Mexico has refused to process a chargeback, indicating that according to Mexican law those are restricted to fraud (non-recognised transations) and not to instances of services not rendered.
  14. Hi there. I'll try to be as explicit as possible, and would very much appreciate some help regarding this matter. I purchased a LHR-MEX (round trip) flight with the Mexican airline "Aeromexico". This flight was supposed to depart on 3rd Nov and return on the 12th of Dec. "Aeromexico" cancelled this flight in the beginning of October and, although I have tried to call them (sometimes even waiting for hours on the phone) to get a refund, they say that they will take 12 months to start processing them. 12 months -- not a typo. It is my understanding they should process r
