bmibaby finds yet another way to charge passengers

Just when you thought it was safe to come out . . .

bmibaby has found yet another way to charge you, this time they are taking advantage of more government snooping and spying that comes in the form of APIS, nothing to do with bees, and not something that boys do behind the bike sheds!

Advance Passenger Information System - another idea dreamed up by the control freaks at Nu Labour to keeps tabs on the innocent general public. More information hoarded away in a secret database to be scanned and searched by the faceless beaurcrats whose inflated salaries and gold-plated pensions we all have to pay.

At some unspecified time the government is going to require airlines to supply passport numbers and lots of other details of passengers to the database before and UK or international flight.

What an opportunity for the likes of bmibaby! Not to miss any chance to extract and extra few quid from the travelling public bmibaby is now emailing passengers telling them that if they don't go to the bmibaby website and add this information to their bookings then they will be charged £5 per flight for entering the data.

In their usual helpful way bmibaby have made this as awkward as possible and don't provide any feedback that the information has in fact been entered so passengers are left in limbo not knowing whether or not they got it right.

bmibaby could never be accused of making their website easy to use.
