Thanks to op, got a £73 refund today. Wouldn't have known about it if I hadn't read this post. Did apply when it was posted 6 months ago but had to wait until flights had been taken for refund to be issued.
The article is false in its claims to British Airways though. According to that article I should not have had a refund and need to submit a claim, but my refund was paid right back in January because British Airways already had all the information from me to process the refund that applied to the ticket we bought for my 13 year old son. This is fact! The rest of the article might be true, I'll await responses from other folk to see if they got an automatic refund and if those people had also submitted the full API as they are required to do so. I'm suggesting there may be a link as to why the refunds aren't automatically occurring. If the article you have referred to is not 100% true then we don't know how much the rest of it is true or how much is just hyperbole.
I am really sorry you feel that way but I am just trying to open peoples eyes up to an anomaly in the system. If you read the list created by moneywise from the original link I posted on the deal you will see clearly that several airlines are not doing this. My only conclusion some of the airlines are profiteering and no one wants to see that
OK, but the articles everyone is linking to states that British Airways are not issuing automatic refunds when they are. I'm only suggesting that those who haven't might be because of lack of info submitted. An airline can't refund if they don't know the age of the child passenger. At booking, we were only required to submit adult or child and full name. It is only after the booking that you add all the additional information such as passport number, dates of birth etc. Without that information, the airlines can't know if there is a child between 12-15 years old as you had to pay for an adult ticket for them. So rather than keep shooting me down and saying I'm wrong, take on board that there is a certain level of responsibility required on the passenger who booked the flights to provide the airlines with confirmation as to whether there is an 'adult' under the age of 15. This is clearly the case for British Airways and the article is false in its claims that they are not providing automatic refunds. I am simply pointing out the reasons people might not be seeing the refunds occur.
As I said previously you booked with one airline British Airways, there are definitely different policies with other airlines which have got nothing to do with whether you fill in a full API or not.
Cheers, could be handy for saving the pennies :)

http://www2.moneywise.co.uk/moneywise/offer1208.jsp here is the direct link :)
thanks. beautiful baby!
Yea thinking about i didn't tick any boxes... if only i'd thought about a false number and email!
There were 3 tick boxes to opt in for receiving stuff by phone, e-mail and post, so if you DON'T tick them, I'm hoping you wont get any. If you give a false phone number and e-mail address, thats two out of three stopped anyway. And two out of three ain't bad. :thumbsup: .
I think it is only valid for fleet street publications members. I get the same access denied message too.
why do i get the access denied message?
No, I have had one of these before - apply and see :thumbsup:
Go ahead post it, wouldn't mind one of those!! :thumbsup: :friends:
Does that mean you have to be a Fleet Street publication to apply???
