    • I hope you mean I try to help people stand up to bullying - and not do the bullying!   I'll assume it's a compliment!     Well - that sort of demonstrates that you've not understood my point and (perhaps?) haven't actually read the OP?   My point is that it is not the boyfriend (the supposed "owner" of the car park) who is posting, but his girlfriend who believes that he "owns" his car parking space.  Yes - it usually makes sense to believe that what the OP is posting is the truth, but in this case there is every reason to believe that there is a possibility that the OP might be mistaken about her boyfriend's ownership of the parking space, because...  well, how would she know for sure whether he does or not?  He might be boasting or lying or simply mistaken.  (My understanding is that many people who "own" flats are often under the mistaken apprehension that they "own" a parking space when they don't.  All the more reason then that somebody else other than the "owner" might be even more mistaken).   I suppose what I'm getting at is that I was a bit surprised that both you and dx100uk were able to give such definite and certain answers to the OP without exploring her situation a bit more fully and ensuring that she fully and correctly understood her boyfriend's rights in respect of the parking space in question.  I was simply concerned that without getting more information from the OP, then the replies given to her might prove to be less than useful.  I wouldn't want her to leave thinking that there was absolutely nothing to worry about and then find out there was because she'd been misadvised because she didn't understand whether her BF "owned" the space or not.   Of course, it may be that my concern here makes absolutely no difference to the answer that needs to be given to the OP because it doesn't matter whether her boyfriend actually "owns" the parking space or not, which is fine.  But sometimes I think it would be helpful to the OP (and other readers like myself) if some of these legal niceties could be spelled out rather than left unexplained.    
    • I've spoken to my son in law and because the gearbox can be very expensive to repair, he would prefer to reject the car.   The garage isn't going to charge storage at the moment.   I feel they have been mislead regarding the service history.   How difficult would it be to get the finance company on our side in rejecting the car and sending back to the dealer?
    • The first thing to say is that you better go ahead and refund the buyer because otherwise she will end up getting negative feedback as well. We will try and help you get your money back from Hermes. Have you made a formal claim through Hermes and have they formally declined you and giving you reasons why? Presumably the item was properly declared and properly valued when the delivery was booked. You don't say whether or not you took out their so-called insurance. Please start off by reading around the sub- forum focusing particularly on the Hermes threats. There are lots of them. Get to understand the principles in respect of the arguments – the insurance element, your third party rights despite the fact that you booked it through Packlink. Have a look at other people's experiences of having sued Hermes, the process of issuing the claim, the defence, the mediation and have a close look at the advice that we give about how to handle mediation. It's highly likely that you will have to issue claim papers so also read around to understand the steps you need to take to bring a small claim in the County Court. It's straightforward but understanding the steps will make you far more confident about what you are doing. Have you started a formal complaint against Hermes and Packlink?

Passengers will have more choice at Manchester Airport after bmibaby announced two new services in its summer 2009 flight programme, according to reports.


The budget airline will now operate from Manchester Airport to Toulouse and Amsterdam, as of March 29th, 2009, while the schedule includes a double daily service to Amsterdam on weekdays plus an additional service on Sunday.

My apologies to Rob/Mike and anyone else that might be following this thread. I've just moved house and started a new job, so things are a bit hectic. I will try and pen a follow up letter this weekend.


I also have heard nothing back. This one will set a timescale before action and will need to be sent recorded.


We could also consider reporting the issue to the Civil Aviation Authority, as they have not even responded regarding our refunds..? Which should be pretty clear cut..


Cheers, Tim

I was on that flight too and I am still trying to get compensation from BMI Baby. I have just discovered this forum so I have done everything on my own.


So far, I have sent a 4-page letter to BMI Baby in Sept 2008. They replied in October 2008 saying that they were sorry but that they wouldn't give us anything. Then we contacted the European Commission, who said that they couldn't do anything but that they were trying to set some examples because many airlines companies did not respect the passagers' rights. So we contacted the Flying Authority in the UK who contacted the Flying Authority in Spain, as it happened there, as well as BMI Baby. Until then, BMI Baby hasn't reply to the three letters from the Spanish Flying Authority. We were advised to wait until September 2009 before going to Court and ask for compensation.


In addition to what was previously said on this forum regarding compensation, you should know that Article 14 of AC261/2004 was broken as there was no copy of the Passengers Rights available in the entire airport. BMIBaby also denied us the entilement for a drink, a phone call or Internet access, accomodation... when we asked the staff for that on the 25th July 2008.


What about you? Are you still fighting for your rights? Keep me updated.

Welcome to the site.

Tim has not been here since last September-so theres been no further updates on this.

I will try and see if I can contact him to see if it was sorted.

Why have you been asked to wait until September before taking legal action ?

Thanks Martin. We simply followed the normal procedure, during which the Spanish Flying Authority is responsible for assessing the responsibility of the airline. They contact the airline once every three months, a maximum of three times. The third time they contacted BMIBbaby was in May 2009, so they have now advised us to take legal action as the mediation work has failed.

Hi guys,


I've been having an issue with BMI Baby also, and although it's not identical to this, I'll post my experiences here.


I sent a recorded delivery letter to BMI Baby and never got a response. I finally contacted the AUC (Air Transport Users Council) at www.auc.org.uk who are brilliant. They advised me to wait 6 weeks for a reply and then to contact them again. I did so and they then wrote to BMI Baby on my behalf, upon which I finally got a response. BMI Baby are still being problematic with my case but the AUC is amazing at helping and should be able to help you if it's been longer than 6 weeks since you wrote to them.
