    Consumer News

     

    British Airways and Iberia are changing their tariffing structure and charging for hold luggage on some routes. According to the airlines this is what the customer wants (we say it’s a hold luggage charge, they say it’s a discount for passengers who only carry hand luggage). Oversized hand luggage will be subject to a fee, check size allowed before you fly.

     

    Movistar will no longer be locking in new mobile contract customers starting next week. They hope that clients won’t change to their competitors based on Movistar’s “good customer service” (their words, not ours!).

     

    An investigation is underway regarding possible price cartels at car showrooms in Spain. Most brands are involved and they could be fined up to 10% of last year’s turnover.
