@thesecretsanta neither Article 10 nor the Interpretative Guidelines specifies either way so it is potentially arguable. Article 10 does refer to the ‘operating carrier’ and of course BA wasn’t the operating carrier for the flight on which you were downgraded. I think the bigger issue is that ultimately you voluntarily accepted to be downgraded. Yes, it was faute de mieux but that doesn’t technically really change anything.

BA often bamboozles CEDR with these sorts of anrguments and unfortunately their adjudicators rarely have the experience or clarity of thought of judges.
