No toilet paper means loss for BA

British Airways could be left with €333,000 bill
A British Airways plane due to fly to the Caribbean had to wait on the tarmac at London Gatwick for more than five hours because of a shortage of toilet paper. The airline now faces heavy compensation claims.
Passengers on BA flight 2153 to Barbados were delayed because the plane had not been properly prepared, forcing the airline to get a new ground crew to restock toilet rolls and headphones.
The Boeing 777 was due to depart at 13:40 on Sunday but did not leave until after 18:50. Under EU legislation, each passenger can demand compensation of €600 each. With the return service also leaving very late, that could take potential compensation to €333,000.
