Most people who fly on a regular basis get used to the process: the checking in, waiting to board, being seated, the take-off, the flight itself, and the landing. For many people, flying can be a relaxing, enjoyable experience, especially if you’re lucky enough to sit by the window seat while flying over the snow-capped Alps.
Some people, however, may feel trapped or claustrophobic on a plane, while others may have concerns over security threats. Flight staff have a duty of care to reassure nervous passengers and make them feel safe, especially if a passenger has never flown before.
Flying – statistically safe, although personal injury accidents do happen
Although flying is statistically one of the safest modes of transport available, some passengers can still experience accidents that may not have been their fault. If you were scalded after a member of staff spilt a hot drink over you, you could be eligible to claim compensation. Likewise, if you suffered a slip, trip or fall on a wet surface at an airport, you could also make a claim for any hardship you may have suffered.
