Very interesting and relevant comments continue on this important issue.
Every one has a validity. They each reflect from a different angle, within the Professions, outside, and from durisdictions that differ.
It would be really helpful and such an ongoing thread of interest, if BT could obtain some Airline Policies on assistance, insurance, durisdiction , and benefit if, and how it is awarded.
Perhaps we can also be then better informed from them?
It still is a major concern to me, that where we fly from, to, and on which Airline, has a major impact.
It is quite a different situation, than assisting at a roadside incident in the UK, when we work and are insured, licensed and have English Law.
BT, time to come in on this one, or perhaps assist us with the archive that you have, or ask some of our major Airlines?
