    According to the Mail-on-line: ” ………he has been awarded a £130,000 payout at Central London County Court”. This is the amount in the Montreal Convention for accident and injury, but a trial will also go ahead at a later date over whether he is due a bigger payout.

    Yes I saw that but they seem to have been in court in May, maybe put off to another day. Thank you.

    “Yes I saw that but they seem to have been in court in May, maybe put off to another day. Thank you”.

    Precisely: BA have admitted liability. But, he is claiming £5M and the latest hearing was only 3 weeks ago. It could be some time until the final amount is confirmed. The wheels of financial justice run slowly in the UK (eg postmasters, Grenfell Tower, Contaminated Blood etc).

    I don’t think so. From the reports it appears that BA agreed that they have to pay him £130k, but they won’t until the final amount is agreed. They are fighting a larger award, hence the delay whilst both sides find experts to report and advise the court.
