Crew illness is a little complicated, although the decision in Lipton v BA City Flyer Ltd [2021] EWCA Civ 454 is in your favour, it’s annoyingly specific. There is also the issue of choosing to take the QR flight (ie making it a voluntary election) vs waiting for the next day and BA paying expenses in the interim. You have a good prospect of winning, but it looks as though BA won’t concede, so you will need to take them to CEDR or MCOL.

So Ba have finally agreed to pay £520 for the syd delay caused by crew illness but won’t accept liability. This was achieved through CEDR. I doubt I can do much about the acceptance of liability but can I do anything to ensure payment is made without further delay?
