ABSTRACT
The article reports on the comments of Travel Republic managing director Kane Pirie on the British Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), following the authority's defeat at the High Court. Lord Justice Elias rejected the CAA's appeal against the not-guilty verdict in the Travel Republic case, supporting the magistrates court's ruling that Travel Republic was not selling packages and not required to have an Atol. Pirie expects the dispute will be over after this judgement.
