BA claimBack to Forum
My trip was canceled by BA on 20-12-2018 and after several correspondence they decided to reimburse me 256 pounds, after a year no payment has been made to date ???? I contacted the BA agents who took charge of my case again, no response from them? It is really disappointing that an airline worthy of the name ignores these customers for not responding to the promise or even for not responding to an email !!!!

It says they were sending you a cheque. If you haven’t received it then either follow it up or raise a case with CEDR.
If it is compensation you are after then unlikely you will get any, as drone activity would almost certainly be classed as extraordinary circumstances.17 Dec 2019

see below the confirmation message from British Airways to have received the bank details, and to follow up I sent several messages to BA agents with whom I corresponded but unfortunately they did not respond to my email, then I have decide to contact you on this link to take my problem seriously.

I’d like to let you know that we’ve received the authority letter and bank details. However, we’re investigating this case with our Payments team. It might take some time for us to reply back. Please be assured that we will get in touch with you as soon as possible.
I’d also like to inform you that we’ve set up a file for you, and the reference number can be found below. We respond to emails in the order they’re received, so we will be in touch again soon. While you are waiting for your reply there is no need to re-send your email or send a follow-up communication.

Well if they are not responding to emails I would submit a complaint to CEDR (arbitration). It’s free and can be done online.
When you say “I have decide to contact you on this link to take my problem seriously” please bear in mind this is an internet board, it is nothing to do with BA and we can’t resolve your issue….18 Dec 2019
Issue summons in the Small Claims Court. You need to send them a letter before action before doing so, in which you specify the amount owed to you, and the reason you believe it is owed to you.
I think the process is valid as the cause for action took place in the UK, even if you don’t live there. You may need a UK address for return of papers.18 Dec 2019
Let me tell you,these days not many airlines if any are any good when it comes to handle CS complaints and refunds etc.
Their motto is : pay,fly ,and shut up.
Welcome to this new Aviation world.
It won’t change,if anything,will get much worse.23 Dec 2019
