Newlyweds Prince William and Duchess Catherine were slightly miffed, to say the least, when the inflight entertainment on their 10 hour British Airways flight didn't work.
They -- among with other passengers who paid around £5,000 ($7,500) for their first class tickets -- were given £200 ($300) by BA in compensation for the inconvenience of staring at a blank screen for the duration of the flight.
"The whole of first class including the Duke and Duchess seemed a bit peeved but they were placated by BA's offer", Britain's The Mirror newspaper reported.
That set us thinking: what is an acceptable amount in compensation for inflight entertainment failure?
Australian Business Traveller staff have been on several international flights where the inflight entertainment failed, and received $100 vouchers from Qantas on each occasion -- for use against the booking of a future trip.
Is it enough? We'd like to know what you think is an acceptable compensation for the loss of inflight entertainment during a long flight.
If it has happened to you, how much did you get in compensation from the airline?
And do any airlines in particular have less/more reliable inflight entertainment systems?
