There are times when we are mortified. There are times when we are stumped. There are times when we are just stoic. But there are very very rare times when we are downright amused (roll on the floor laughing types amused)!
Our first reaction when I came across this news piece–Bangladesh has an airlines!!!
I am not trying to be mean..really…but Bangladesh having an airline was a genuine surprise. But on second thoughts, Bangladesh has a cricket team with a performance record…erm…to reckon for. An airline, performance notwithstanding, seems a much more viable load.
Pulling ourselves within the realms of diplomatic dignity (and of course, we didn’t mean any harm or disrespect…but there are points we just can’t resist!)
Back to the original point, Biman Bangladesh has been ordered to pay 41K to a consumer in Delhi by the New Delhi Consumer Forum for losing his LCD TV in transit from Bangkok to Delhi. The airline refused to compensate the consumer despite being informed by him leading go this complaint. The forum held the airline liable for deficiency in services and ordered them to not only pay the entire cost of the lost LCD but also pay a compensation of 10K for harassment and litigation cost.
