Hopefully this isn't dragged out/played out in the newspapers/media....how terrible for the families of the deceased.

This is crazy, only a week on!

I'm not being funny but if his claim is for "Medical repatriation to the UK" as he states, surely his travel insurance would cover this anyway?

Don't get me wrong I do feel for anyone involved in the accident, but people lost their lives, and surely the cause of the accident needs to be determined before anyone can start claiming anyway?

And that's before you consider he's suing the wrong company, after all you don't sue your travel agent if your plane crashes do you.....

It's a bit of a grey area this one....

Although Manx2 are technically that, a travel agent, they tout themselves as an airline, and so one would expect that Manx2 are the first point of contact. Not everyone is an a.nutter and understands how this leasing malarky works!

Manx2 should reasonably expect, and have made arrangements for, this exact scenario. It is not good enough for them to just shirk responsibility.

This passenger was almost killed while flying with what he believed to be Manx2 airways. The least they can do is fund his passage back to the UK, bill it back to Flightline BCN, and let that be the end of the matter.

Such f**k ups as these, will only draw needless scrutiny on the "virtual" airline model, needless scrutiny on Manx2, and fuel a media frenzy.
