Customer who refuses to pay the £150 airport fare because the aircon was not working properly but wont have the windows open at all. The outside temperature was 22 degrees and cloudy.

Did he request a vehicle with aircon?

No. The vehicle did have aircon but it has a leak. Going in on Wednesday to see what needs doing.

If the fella didn't request a car with aircon then he has no legal reason to withhold payment.

Even if he did request aircon, he could have at any time asked to leave the vehicle.

I had one once refuse to pay for a Heathrow because two of the passengers travelled in a rear facing seat in the end had to accept half the fare or nothing

Why did you have to "accept" it. Trains have rear facing seats and no one complains about that. You were mugged off. In our case if the customer has not paid by the middle of this next week I will make a claim through the small claims court.

How kind of you to let punters decide how much they pay.

So when did they decide to complain about the seating? Before or after the journey?

at the end :sad: basically he was expecting a minibus with all forward facing seats not a WAV and this was a long time ago (20+ years)

Punters who have been waiting 30 mins plus, because it's busy, asking you if you're busy. #-o

No, we have been keeping you waiting just for the fun of it. ](*,)

Well despite sending various payment requests and payment links the fare remained unpaid so yesterday morning I made a claim through the small claims court. Amazingly this morning he want to pay but I have told him that because the claim has been made to the small claims court that payment must be made through the court and now includes a £35.00 court fee.
He is not a happy bunny at all now.
