    • I cant help thinking that if we had to complete a questionaire that asked if you were "physically able bodied" before you were interviewed then this would be classed as discriminative.   Yet you can be asked to explain a gap in employment and that this is not classed as discriminative to people who may have had a mental breakdown.   Ok on this occasion I had taken a work break, if thay had asked a bout a break I had taken 10 years earlier then it would have been a different story as I had suffered depression and anxiety at that time.   It just seams to me that it puts people who have had a mental health issue at a disadvantage.      
    • I am just outside of the HS" zone for compulsory purchase. However,I put my house up for sale 4 weeks ago, and have had 2 viewers. Both said they like the house but the threat of HS2 having framework across the road put them off buying my house.    I am aware that I can take HS2 to court and get the court judge to (hopefully),force HS2 to purchase my house at market value under the Blight Order.    How do I go about starting the process?. Which court would the case go to?. Am i best enlisting a claims specialist with success in this field?.    The estate agent who my house is on the market with has told me that they have the feedback documentation from the 2 viewers testifying that HS2 put them off buying my house, so they would be available to the court.    Apparently there has already been 1 successful case on my street, and 1 two streets down, and there is another case on my street going through the court.    Any help, laws,quotes etc would be greatly appreciated.
    • Hi HubbaLoo and welcome to CAG   It's no surprise that the likes of CARS and Harlands  make far more charging admin fees than they do from taking a small monthly percentage of the gym fees.   It's best to tell CARS your new address - best that you know what they're up to at all times.   Send them a typed letter (no emails for now) saying:-   Dear sir or madam,   Membership at [town/city] DW Gym   My current address is as shown above.   I cancelled my membership when I relocated and supplied details of moving. I do NOT have to supply utility bills etc as demanded from you and will not enter into further correspondence with you.   If you continue to harass me for payments of admin fees, I will make formal complaints to the appropriate authorities.   Yours faithfully.    
    • It is not the DVLA that insist it must be insured, it is s.144A, Road Traffic Act 1988. Off road and SORN is one of the exceptions - s.144B of the same act.
    • Update  Ico and tpos are both useless Martin quinn has said to them that the signature on the tenancy agreement is diffrent and neither have asked for proof  The police have not given me an update on the supposed burglary or speakers that went missing that the man n van was meant to deliver  even after asking 9 times so now I'm trying to put pressure on them to tell me why they wont    I'm also going to try and get him under the Protection from Eviction Act 1977 as what he has done is a criminal offence

Hi please see below the response from BH airlines to my delay flight claim

- seems to be saying, yes the aircraft was broke but we are only a charter company so tough!

Also interesting interpretation of BH holidays terms and conditions. Whats next then SC court?

any views gratefully received:

 

Thank you for contacting BH AIR Customer Service Department and thus giving us the chance to review your complaint. Thank you for your patience while the case was being reviewed.

 

 

First of all, we would like to apologize for the inconveniences you faced due to the delay of your flight.

We do realize that any delay could be quite frustrating and we strive to avoid such occurrences.

Unfortunately, delays in aviation do happen and in such cases we try to at least minimize them as much as possible.

 

We would like to take this opportunity to explain that your return flight was delayed due to a combination of factors which made it very difficult for the airline's ground-handling agent to predict how long it would be delayed for.

We can advise that your flight was unfortunately adversely affected by a series of cumulative delays to the aircraft on

earlier rotations.

 

 

The root cause of your delay was a technical problem to the aircraft on a previous rotation.

We naturally regret to hear that the end of your holiday was marred by the above delay.

*We can advise that the track record of BH Airlines on timekeeping is very good, but unfortunately sometimes delays do occur for reasons beyond our control.

 

As a charter airline BH Air has less flexibility than other airlines (such as e.g. Lufthansa or Air France) to replace an aircraft in order to comply with its initial schedule. Preventing this delay would have led us to making „intolerable sacrifices” in the light of the capacities of BH Air’s undertaking at the time of the flight, which sacrifices (as per the rationale of the European court judgment on Case C-294/10 (Eglītis-Ratnieks v. Latvijas Republikas Ekonomikas ministrija) we have no legal obligation to make.

 

 

Evident from the above, the delay of the flight was caused by circumstances which we could not avoid even where we took all reasonable measures within the capacity of our airline.

 

Furthermore, we would like to advise you that BH Air operated the flight on the basis of an aircraft lease arrangement but not a contract of carriage with you and the members of your family as passengers.

 

 

The flight schedule announced was for reference only.

As stated on Balkan Holidays website – flight timings and routings are only provisional and may be subject to change! Hence, the Airline had no contractual obligation vis-à-vis you and your family to comply with any specific flight schedule and may not be responsible for any flight delay.

 

 

For that reason and reasons mentioned above, we may not honour your claim for compensation under Regulation No 261/2004 or otherwise.

 

 

That being said, we would like to take this one last chance to apologize for all inconveniences caused.

We always strive to give our passengers only the best customer service and so your feedback as it is highly

appreciated.

 

 

We hope that they will give us the chance to welcome you on board our aircraft in the future and give you the customer service you deserve!

 

Kindest regards,

BH Air Claims Team

It is funny how BHAir's website has a section on passengers' rights!

http://bhairlines.com/page.php?id=51

 

I doubt a court would agree with them that there was no contract to carry you as passengers (who did you pay for the whole holiday, or who did you pay for the flight if paid separately?) (was their contract to carry you with yourself or with an intermediate third party?)

 

Even if your contract was with another firm (and their contract with another firm too) : BHair are the "air carrier", they are an EU air carrier, and the flight was to or from an EU destination?.

 

So your options are to complain through Bulgaria's equivalent of the CAA, or send the airline a rejection of their reply, and a (14 day?) letter before claim, prior to going down the Small Claims route.

 

The latter may be speedier / easier!
