Airline to pay passenger Dh30,000 for baggage loss... twice

By Staff

An Abu Dhabi court ordered a regional airline to pay a passenger Dh30,000 damages for the loss of his baggage twice, in separate trips, in less than a year.

The unnamed man had demanded Dh100,000 compensation and the recovery of the prices of his ticket and his wife’s, Emarat Al Youm daily said.

But the court ordered the airline to pay the passenger Dh30,000 plus the price of his wife’s ticket on the grounds she could not travel on doctor’s order as she was pregnant.

The man had told court the airline lost his baggage during a flight to an Asian country and again he could not find his bags during another flight to an Arab country to register in a university. He said he lost valuable items and education documents.

Top court orders firm to pay sacked managed Dh1.29mn

The UAE’s top court ordered a local company to pay its manager Dh1.29 million in dues and allowances after he was sacked without reason.

The Federal supreme court upheld a previous court sentence paying the unnamed manager the sum although he had demanded Dh1.43 million.

An appeal court had earlier reduced the sum to Dh918,000, prompting the manager to appeal again with the federal supreme court, which also ordered the company to pay him Dh13,300 per month for his apartment rent since March 2011 until the date of his sacking, according to Al Khaleej newspaper.
