BA Booking Problem - Urgent

Sat Jan 04, 2003 11:11 pm

Hello guys,

I am online with a forum member to book our flights for this summer in the UK, but BA does not accept our credit card because our country of residence is Belgium!

We have to book 6 BA flights: BRU-LHR-BRU, LHR-EDI-LHR and EDI-MAN-EDI.

What do we have to do now? Call center etc. is much more expensive... Are their thrustful travelwebsites that we can use?

Thanks,
Frederic

A forum member who had a similar problem some days ago got the advice to book via call centre: explaining your particular problem, they´d honour the web quoted fare.

I´ve no idea about it, I´m just re-iterating what other people siad in that thread.

Hi Sabena690

The same thing happened to me last week when I tried to book a MAN-LGW-MAN flight.

Instead flying BA to LGW I am now flying British Midland to Heathrow and back!

Do you have to fly BA, I am sure bmi has flights from EDI to MAN?

Regards,
RJ100

@RJ100:

BA flights are with 752, that's why I take them...

Thanks for the replies.

Hi Frederic,

try to book those flights on one of the follwing websites:

www.opodo.co.uk
www.opodo.de
www.opodo.fr

That should work and they have the same fares like BA on it's own homepage.

Hope that helps....
