PSC ROW PROGRESSES
The legal wrangle between ABTA and British Airways over the Passenger Service Charge has moved forward after both sides were required to provide details of case documents by last Friday. Lawyers representing both parties were required to inform each other which documents they would be referring to when attending the High Court hearing on November 8. Meanwhile, BA’s legal department is scrutinising the new rules laid down last week by the European Commission about renegotiating contracts with agents.
