    Alternative Promise Again

    Hi Wayne

    Sorry to bother you with this again but I'm afraid I must question your previous answer on this subject.

    How can we start using an Alternative Promise which is not one of the variations allowed in POR? No amendments to allow this were included in the recent Jan POR amendments consultation and no change appears to have been made to Chapter 1 of POR to accommodate the new alternative Promise (i just checked the version on the website)

    Surely as such allowing the use of the new alternative Promise would technically be a breach of POR something which I assume you would not wish to encourage.

    I suggest you get this section of POR amended ASAP as at the moment this is turning into a bit of a farce IMHO

    We'll need to agree to differ on this Peter; changes are in hand, immediate advice has been given and the policy is clearly stated.

    The policy might have been clearly stated and I have no problem with it but the rules of TSA do not reflect the policy as yet so can we now all choose which rules we do or do not follow? Or can we just ignore a rule if the UK CC tells us its ok?

    Frankly I think its fairly poor that once the changes were announced with a start date of Jan that it was not made sure that POR reflected these changes by then and if this was not achievable (although I don't see why this would be the case) then a later implementation date should have been chosen.

    The fact is that when the Jan POR amendments were released for consultation with no changes to accommodate the new alternative Promise I and probably hundreds of others pointed out this potential problem and still nothing has been done to avoid it.
