Customer Question

Earlier this year I paid for two return air tickets from Melbourne to Los Angeles. The other party has since fled, Qantas have "split" the booking and maintain that the other party is legal owner of the ticket! Personal items were also left at the home of the other party. These have been disposed of without notice and included several irreplaceable items of mine.
A letter has been written, and the replies are absolute fiction!
I would like to know if I have a legal right to compensation.
Thank you.

Good Morning.

My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.

They are the legal owners as the ticket is in their name.

You can sue the other party for the cost of the ticket. They owe you the money.

You can do this in the magistrates court.

Here is some information on the process in Tasmania to sue

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If there is nothing further

thank you for using my services.

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know

If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.
