The retired nurse added: "I was pushed down the chute, no- one was there to catch me, then they started to come down on top of me. My leg's still sore."
... She's got to be kidding. This is a wind up, isn't it?

Trouble is, it will be cheaper to give the claimant a few k than to fight this nonsense and see it all off once and for all.

Nobody is looking at the bigger, industry wide, picture that says resist all the way to the Supreme Court and get some senior court authority on the subject.

Each individual claim is under 10k including all the costs. It's cheaper to settle than punt half a million on having chosen the wrong 'test case'.

Honest guv, it was only meant as a joke..........

My original post #25

I am however, not the least bit surprised.

What do they expect when they sell the tickets for 25 quid

Not if you set a precedent like that!

yeah but you may not have another similar incident for 15 years - it's the other airlines who will suffer but of course they won't pay your costs to take this one to court

It won't get to be a precedent because it will never get to court. The trick played by the lawyers in these cases is to push things to the brink of proceedings and then pull back and agree a settlement figure.

IM were known, in their formative stages up north, as the Yorkshire rotweillers
