Motion text

That this House calls on Willie Walsh of British Airways to examine the unacceptably poor levels of customer care and competence of its so-called Customer Service and the stewardship of its Refunds Department; is dismayed that it is almost impossible for customers to be able to speak on a telephone to an agent who listens and will provide help, guidance and remedies; notes British Airways' failure to process and respond to faxes or e-mails of customers; considers that at a time of increased world-wide competition British Airways needs dramatically to improve the levels of its service to customers or it will lose large numbers of customers permanently; and concludes that its current industrial relations crisis is symptomatic and indicative of arrogance and mediocre management, further aggravated by its indifference to its customers.
