The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge received a compensation of $323 from British Airways, since their in-flight movie broke down mid-flight. Not many people can say that happens to them every time the plane fails to entertain them. Though not many people could say that they booted out $8,078 each for their seats. I’m sure other than that, Will and Kate’s stay in L.A. was great, seeing as they won a charity polo match and met various Hollywood stars. How’s that for a trip to California?

They are one of the cutest couples ever! I can never get enough of them!! I have been on airplanes before myself. While on the plane, I was always treated very kindly and with respect (and I am not even a member of royalty myself). And, because these two are, they really do deserve to be treated like the true royalty that they really are. If the in-flight movie had not broken down during mid-flight, they would have been able to enjoy the entire movie. However, because this mishap did occur, they weren't able to receive all that the flight had to offer. And, as a result, I do feel that they were fully deserving of the $323 that they received back from the airline.

That's kind of stupid in my opinion. Yeah, they may have paid a lot for their seats, but it isn't like they can't afford it. Why should they get money back for a movie not playing and no one else would? That isn't fair; they're getting special treatment just because of their status. Everyone should be treated fairly.

I am SOOOOOO sick of hearing about all the special treatment stars and famous people get! By dang, if my movie didnt work in the flight, they'd give me a sack of airline peanuts and tell me to zip it! I also think its stupid to get a refund for the TV not working--were you paying to watch the TV?? NOOO!!! You're paying for a FLIGHT!! Strike up a conversation, take a nap, read for crap sake!! There are other things to do other than watch the stupid TV!!

Holy moly it would be crazy to be able to afford luxuries like that for small things such as plane flights. but when i think about it, i wonder even if i had that much money would i spend that much on just a flight?

It seems so CRAZY, the high prices of tickets - must be nice to get it back just because the movie doesn't work.

For $8000 tickets, I would sure hope to be reimbursed for the movie! It also wouldn't hurt if I were a royal...

That is silly. If the movie went out on a non-celeb flight, no one would get a refund...they would get, "I'm sorry." over the intercom...

To be honest, I am just glad to see people of this wealth giving back ie.the charity event they were part of. As far as getting a refund, who has 8G's to pay for a seat, ah well they do....would not have given them a refund though. But $323 is more of an insult I would say for these folks...only a very small fraction of what they paid for the seat itself.
