    What? An airline wrongly denying passengers their legitimate compensation claims? Who'd have thunk it?!

    I have just received an email from BA denying compensation for a flight cancelled because of the IT blunder. We were supposed to fly BA to Madrid and them Iberia.

    BA has emailed telling us go ask Iberia for compensation. It's so bad!
