BA may face multi-million compensation battle

British Airways could face a multi-million pound bill after it agreed to compensate two passengers for cancelled flights.
The airline reportedly agreed to pay £430 compensation and legal costs for two passengers who were stranded in Cape Town because of an industrial dispute.
Its settlement raises the possibility of similar claims from thousands of other customers affected by the strike earlier this year.
EUclaim, which represented the pair, is to apply for the case to be heard in a Dutch court and claims it has been contacted by 400 other BA passengers and travel agents acting on behalf of multinational companies who are all seeking compensation.
