    Compensation - AirMiles vs s 11th Oct 17 at 2:23 PM
    On June 17th this year AA Flight 057 from LHR to MIA was diverted to Terpeira in the Azores for a medical emergency.
    The result was a 6 hour delay in reaching Miami causing cancelled meetings and much distress and inconvenience.
    AA's Customer Relations (pre- emptying a Claim) apologised and credited me with 20,000 Air Miles as compensation without any action on my part.
    Am I obliged to accept this in final settlement, or should I press for a financial claim which I understand could be for 530 ( according to the Daily Mail of 1/7/2017)?
    I look forward to your guidance.

    A medical emergency is an extraordinary circumstance. You are not entitled to compensation.

    You should never rely on the Daily Mail for anything factual!

    If it truly was an medical emergency then take the airmiles. You're not entitled to anything else under reg 261/2004.

  • Hurrah! The ASA's ruled against 2 fake Facebook ads using my image https://t.co/GvNrqDPOC5 tho Facebook still shows others

  • PS Today's poll is obviously inspired by the real question I was asked and tweeted about last night.

  • Not all firms have panels and HR teams. There are many very small businesses out there without such resources :) https://t.co/cLo0zO7Yqu
