Class action against Alitalia?

Class action against Alitalia?

During a flight with Alitalia, one of my belongings got damaged. Alitalia recognized it was of their fault and promised a refund of 70 euros. This was written in an email. After several months and several emails, I never received the refund. Is anyone else in this situation? If there are several of us, we could set up a class action against Alitalia. Any help would be much appreciated.

You seriously want to start a class action suit for 70 euro? How much do you expect to spend in legal fees to get that money? Sue in small claims court if you must, but a class action suit is just insane.

I'm sure you've already waived your right to initiate a class action suit just by buying a ticket with Alitalia in the first place....these clauses are extremely common and are more often than not upheld.

Lol. I've read some funny things on here, but a class action for 70 euros is well up there. It beats the guy who wanted free beer in the immigration queue as he was on an all inclusive holiday.

Seriously, I'd pay 70 euros just for you to try so I could watch, would be worth it for the laughs:))

Wow. Just when you thought you had seen and heard everything on TA, GiovZ33 proves otherwise.

It will probably cost more than 70 Euros for the first consultation with a lawyer, at which time he/she will tell you you don't have a worthwhile case ... darn more Euros out of the pocket ....
