If we are unable to assist with a particular requirement, we may be able to recommend an organisation who can help.
Should any complaint of the nature outlined above present itself between the point of booking and the flight taking place the user has an absolute obligation to notify JBA immediately. Should such a complaint be revealed on the day of the flight JBA reserves the absolute right to refuse to undertake the flight with the user as passenger.
