@meta it’s £70 + £85 hearing fee = £155 and this case will surely go to a hearing. Where I am afraid you systematically go wrong is that you suggest someone will win because you allegedly won a case with similar but clearly not identical facts and as it is anyway a subjective decision, the sabe facts could result in a different decision. There are no binding judgments that cover the circumstances of this case so it will be considered on its facts and the law as it applied at the time (ie in 2017), not today. I don’t believe for one moment you would take this case to MCOL today.

Well JDB just the fact that BA has changed the reason for the delay 3 times, offering 3 different reasons one after the other, is a bit like BA waving a flag saying we’ll invent any excuse we can just so we can keep refusing.

That alone would give me serious cause to think about pursuing this in a place where BA is supposed to tell only the truth i.e. court/MCOL. Obvs everyone will do their own weighing up and make their own decision but BA isn’t doing themselves any favours changing their story like this.
