What airlines legally can and can't do to their passengers

  What airlines legally can and can't do to their passengers After Sundays’s shocking incident on a United Airlines flight, where a 69-year-old man was beaten and dragged off a flight that was overbooked, many people are asking questions about passenger rights.  It may seem hard to believe, but it is in fact legal for an airline to remove a fare-paying passenger from a flight, even after they have checked in and boarded the plane. In fact, the practice of overbooking is common, with airlines overselling seats on the assumption that there’ll always be a small number of no-shows.

International airports like Heathrow can have significant impacts on the environment . This report is an overview of the progress we’ve made in 2014 against our Responsible Heathrow 2020 Our passengers had even greater choice in 2015 with new airlines , new destinations and even more

A total of 24 out of 50 carriers performed poorly on at least one measurement of noise, emissions and unscheduled night flights between January and March, according to figures published by the west London hub.

Israeli airline El Al was ranked bottom of the list, below Kuwait Airways, Middle East Airlines and Pakistan International Airlines.

British Airways' short-haul flights had the best record, with Aer Lingus the runner-up and Etihad Airways in third place.

It is the first time Heathrow has included airlines' emissions in its quarterly environmental ratings.

Emirates Literally Just Made an Entire Commercial Trolling United Airlines

  Emirates Literally Just Made an Entire Commercial Trolling United Airlines Whoa, Emirates. The heavily-accoladed airline based in Dubai just released a new commercial on social media that is straight up savage. The entire thing is aimed at Untied Airlines, which has been in the middle of a PR nightmare since a video showing police and United Airlines personnel physically dragging a man off an overbooked flight surfaced yesterday.

Responsible Heathrow 2020 is our plan to support the UK and local economies, reduce Heathrow ’s environmental impacts and look after passengers and people. We’ll work with NATS and other Sustainable Aviation partners to target the dozen worst -performing airlines .

The Fly Quiet and Clean Table is part of the airport's bid to become a "world leader" in having the cleanest aircraft and operations possible.

Campaigners opposed to Heathrow's planned third runway claim the environmental impact of the expansion will create major problems for residents living both nearby and under flight paths.

Heathrow director of sustainability Matt Gorman said: "While the main contributor to local pollution remains road traffic, Heathrow is playing its part to improve air quality by reducing emissions from its vehicles, buildings and aircraft.

"We are excited to add a whole new dimension to the league table and have another tool to help airlines to reduce their impact on air quality.

"Together, we can play our part to improve our local environment and help the UK and London governments meet their air-quality targets."

Britain's Heathrow says baggage problem fixed after early failure

  Britain's Heathrow says baggage problem fixed after early failure Europe's biggest airport London Heathrow said on Thursday that an issue preventing bags from being checked in at terminals 3 and 5 had been resolved and apologised to those passengers who had to fly without luggage on early morning flights. Heathrow, which suffered massive disruption last month when a power surge knocked out British Airways' IT system, said bag drop desks were now operating normally. Terminals 2 and 4 had not been affected by the issue."We recommend that passengers who have already departed on flights this morning without their baggage contact their airline for further updates," it said on Twitter.

John Stewart, chairman of anti-expansion group HACAN, said: "This naming and shaming of airlines is a useful step in the right direction.

"We will keep up the pressure on Heathrow to do all in its power to reduce the impact of noise and pollution on the communities under the flight paths."
