Topic Wiki

This is the thread where you can ask any random question you have. Feel free to ask even the most basic questions that you otherwise might be embarrassed to ask. This is the thread for beginners, so veterans here will treat you nicely. Ask a beginner's Q in some other threads and no guarantee of that same treatment. ;)
People here want to help, so just have some patience, follow the tips below and hopefully someone will help you when they have a chance.

If you looking for a particular thread you once saw and can't find it, this is not the place to ask. Check out Help Me Find It and ask there.

How to ask a question in this thread:
Click the blue reply button at the top or bottom of the page, type your question, and click post!

Some helpful tips for eliciting answers from other members:
- Keep your question short and precise. No one wants to read a megillah.
- The more questions you ask in one post, the less likely any will be answered. People are willing to answer a question or two, but if you ask all the questions that apply to your particular issue, you're expecting to be spoonfed. Members don't like holding out the spoon, so ask accordingly.

Nice, thanks
If you focus on being a boss, you will never be a leader. Leaders lead people to growth and improvement.

ba confirmed with me on phone that ticket was booked, caused me to delay 12 hour
« Reply #9362 on: October 24, 2022, 09:54:57 PM »
british aiways confirmed with me on phone (of course they record their conversations) that my baby ticket is booked, was a phone purchase ticket only for the infant
the other 6 tickets was aa tickets bought through ba, they told me that they will link the infant ticket to the booking reference for the other 6 tickets
 
when we arrived to the airport to aa checkin they told us that the baby ticket was not confirmed,
they didnt allow us to board, and although we were still early they told us we cant board, after going from aa to ba back and forth, ba told us we must take a later flight, pushed us from a 9 .45 am flight to a 6pm flight which had another few hours delay!
imagine sitting in airport for 12 hours with family of kids after full night being up packing!
how do i get from them copy of their recording and how do i start a claim with them?


dan can you help me here please?

Do you have a receipt or CC Charge to confirm that the infant was indeed worked? If you have a credit card charge the infants e-ticket or confirmation is probably in the description of the charge.

Recorded conversations are for their protection not for yours.

How do you delete your account and posts? Clicking the button doesn't do anything, as I can sign in later, meaning it's not deleted.

I assume it would have to be hosted elsewhere online so I don't think I'd use it for anything confidential.

You should be able to host it on postimages it in by opening a random thread (here's a good one), clicking the postimages button, add your image and then just paste that link into a PM (without hitting Post on the thread).

Alternatively, go to https://postimages.org/ and then copy the Hotlink for forums.

Hi,

Why are my posts taking forever to get posted? Does every post have to sit around until a moderator gets around to it?

Only beginners. Once you get above a certain post threshold it becomes instant.

Iím not sure, but if your scared of it going through as a cash advance, I believe you can set your cash advance limit to zero and than you wonít have any issues.

It is definitely the filter. I have it the same.
