Advice re: flight tickets

Hi all,

I've booked flights with Qatar to Goa, and because of the recent schedule changes, i will no longer make my connecting flight (British Airways on a separate ticket) from LHR to NCL later that day...

I've tried my luck with BA and they want £60.55 per person per change to move to a later flight, and Qatar won't help because it is booked on a separate ticket.

I'm 99% sure i'm going to have to pay, but do any of you know a loophole, or maybe something passengers are entitled to when flight schedules change?

Will also post this to the Air Travel Forum, if i can find it!

Thanks in advance :)

Rotherham, United...

Jonny, recheck your booking. Our Goa to Doha flight has changed time again now 03.50 from Goa and lands Doha at 05.25 . We are now ok for our 07.25 Manchester Flight.

Unless you have a good insurance policy which may cover those eventualities, which is probably unlikely, then you have no chance of any entitlement. Unfortunately that is the problem booking separate tickets.

If you are unfortunate enough to miss ur connecting flight, and as you say B.A want £60 each, it nay be cheeper to book new flights?.
