Report informs, both of them put forward a claim for compensation of the damage caused.
Khatai District Court partially satisfied the claim. The claimants and defendant, dissatisfied with the decision, filed mutual appeals. The case is heard at Baku Court of Appeal.
Lawyer Kamandar Nasibov explained to Report News Agency the reason of filing appeal against the company: 'In 2015, me, as a lawyer of 'Baku Fires' boxing club and a member of the club Mahammad Gurbanov had been travelling to Buenos Aires, capital of Argentina. We had a flight via Baku-Istanbul, Istanbul-Buenos Aires of 'Turkish Airlines'. Nearly 10 hours after take-off it was announced to the passengers that the plane will land at the airport in Sao Paulo city of Brazil. However, they stated that the flight will be carried out after 40 minutes, namely, as in the ticket to Buenos Aires, it did not happen. Thus, after 3 hours they said that the flight canceled. A group of passengers left the airport, but we stayed there nearly with 15 other passengers.
According to the advocate, the representative office of 'Turkish Airlines' has not provided the passengers with anything.
The lawyer said that they had appealed to the Azerbaijani representative office of 'Turkish Airlines': 'After an appeal they extended period. After some months we appealed to a court. Khatai District Court partially satisfied the claim. That is, the court adopted a decision on payment of 11 thousand 677 manats of 23 thousand 621 manats, damage suffered by me, as well as 11 thousand 647 manats of 21 thousand 689 manats to Mahammad Gurbanov by the airline. But both parties were not satisfied with the decision and filed appeals. The case is heard at Baku Court of Appeal'.
K.Nasibov noted, in fact, number of passengers those who rely on 'Turkish Airlines' reduces.
