Consumer Court Orders LH

Mon Mar 10, 2003 2:05 pm

a consumer court in the Indian state of West Bengal has ordered German carrier Lufthansa to pay Rs.5 lakh each to a group of passengers who had filed a complaint of negligence againt LH.

The passengers had found glass pieces in their food packets on a flight from AMS to FRA.

Commnet:Glass pieces in food? Guess we have to be alittle more careful the next time around!

That wouldn't be LH's fault, it would be whomever catered for them.

LH`s catering supplier is LSG Sky Chefs, a subsidiary of Lufthansa.

I'm aware of that, but they should go after SkyChefs, not Lufthansa itself. If you had a poor flight on Horizon Air, you wouldn't piss up a wall at AS, you'd go after Horizon.

bad news...

By the way i love the Indian expressions for numbers. laks, Cror.. but maybe it's more usefuall to indicate in numerbs everyone can understand. (Shah Jehan ne Kutab minar...  Wink/being sarcastic

One important thing: even if it's the Catering company behind the ngeligence, the passnger affected has a contract (a ticket is a contract between the pax and the airline!) with Lufthansa, so they have to face it. What they do with their caterer is a different thing. Same procedure applies with let's say damaged luggage mainly caused by the airport operators.
