A Federal High Court in Lagos, Nigeria on Monday has ordered the seizure of an aircraft belonging to Emirates Airline over an N8M judgment
The order followed a motion filed by Charles Mekwunye seeking the enforcement of a Supreme Court judgment in a suit between Promise Mekwunye and the airline.
Based on my google search, Mekwunye, who was then a student of North Texas University, Denton, Texas, United States, had in 2008 dragged the airline to court for refusal of her two-way flight ticket from Dallas to Nigeria and back for no reason and for also refusing to fully refund the cost of the American Airline ticket she bought for her return trip to Nigeria.
She claimed that the airline offered no reason for its action, leaving her stranded for days at the airport until she was able to secure a more expensive flight ticket on a longer route to Lagos.
She asked the airline to pay costs and damages but this has turned into a long extended battle which seems to have come to an interesting point.
Will Emirates cancel its flights and suspend flying to Nigeria over ~$22,500? I know Emirates has been growing its market share in Nigeria (and its Lagos to Dubai route is one they have been investing in significantly over the years) and they wouldn’t necessarily want to rock the boat? Will Nigeria actually seize an Emirates plane?????
Or will Emirates appeal this decision based on principle….
