7.2. Whilst we strive to offer the best service we possibly can, you will appreciate that mistakes sometimes do happen. This is the reason why we request that all information be cross checked with the office 2 days prior to travel. We do have advanced checking procedures, however ultimately you, the client, are responsible for ensuring that Leyland Airport Services holds the correct information.
