Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing with regard to a ﬂight that I missed due to a mistake by one of your employees.
Two weeks ago I was due to catch a ﬂight to Rome, where I intended to spend four days on holiday. Unfortunately, the attendant at the check-in desk gave me a boarding card for a different ﬂight, and I did not notice the mistake until I arrived at the departure gate and it was too late.
As a result of the error, I was not allowed to board the ﬂight to Rome, and this caused me great inconvenience. I had to book a new ﬂight two days later, which meant that I missed two days of my holiday and I spent an extra £200.
As the mistake was caused by your company, I hope that you will compensate me for the cost of the additional ﬂight, as well as for my taxi fares to and from the airport.
I look forward to receiving your response.
I’m just writing to let you know that I’ve moved house.
As you know, I went for an interview for a job here in London. Well, they gave me the position! It would have been impractical to travel down from Manchester every day, so we’ve found a house here, in a nice part of London called Greenwich.
Our new house isn't ideal. London prices are crazy, and we were only able to afford a one-bedroom ﬂat. But on the bright side, it’s on the ground ﬂoor, it’s got nice big windows, and a lovely view out onto the garden.
If you ever fancy a trip to London, you’re more than welcome to come and stay. It would be great to see you. From where we live, it’s only a quick ride on the underground into the city centre, so we could do some sight-seeing together.
Keep in touch!
All the best
