If the merchant was not allowed to charge a fee for using a credit card, you would have paid the same amount as the that which you are now paying including the credit card fee. How is that being...

You don't have to make a reservation for either, but you run the risk of being disappointed if you don't. Sometimes I've tried to make a reservation for lunch at Tamarind and been told that they're...

The UK/EU/EEA immigration queues can be very slow on a bad day. I wouldn't want to count on them being fast. In any event, baggage delivery can't be relied on to be fast, either. The OP would only...

By that logic, HAL could justify selling the same cabin to multiple customers. After all, who knows who will cancel their reservation.[/QUOTE]That is exactly what HAL does. It overbooks, and it moves...

That's good news - a fair resolution.

Although I would still be wary about using the TA again for air travel. The TA should already have known about baggage interlining, through baggage...

Virtually no chance, sorry. Depending on what immigration is like, you might not even have reached the baggage belt by 9.30 am.

There are some features that can modify this. Early Bird, for example, which mean that the airline will do the check-in for you before the general public has access to the system. This means that you...

Not the pain of the baggage fee, but your irritation with someone who made a mistake and isn't doing the obvious thing to put it right for the customer.
