Fly For Free On Ghana International Airlines

Tue Jun 06, 2006 4:18 pm

Came across the article below, and am baffled at the report which states that those who booked online for Ghana International's flights were never charged for their flights! Of course, I was sampling a bucket load of salt while reading the article, but it does make references to both existing and ousted GIA officials' statements supporting this fact along with other allegations.

I bring this up to ask if anyone here has purchased at ticket from GIA's website, and can attest to this report? Soups?

Oh, and the article sounds very soap-opera'ish, complete with "next time on daily express ..."

I thought some airlines had bad service, but this is just plain stupid! If I'd have known, I'd have gone out of my way to get a free flight!

If they are giving out free tickets, then I do not see them lasting long.

Euromanx had the same issue when they launched there booking engine.

My parents flew LCY-IOM-LCY and were never charged.

They called Reservations and said they'd never been charged. Res said they had.

They booked 4 more returns each, and still hadn't been charged 2 years later!!!

They sent a email to res being honest, but res said they had been charged.

There flights this year were charged.

Last week they got an email from Euromanx to confirm they had NOT been charged for 5 flights each (returns)in 2005. As there error was there's, would they kindly pay for 2 flights each....they did and, as a kindwill gesture, they got a free ticket valid for 6 months!!!

They've now done 7 flights (all return), and paid for 3!!!!

5 x 2005 paid for 2
2 x 2006 paid for 1 1 free..
