Facts of Blackpool v Blackpool
There was a local airport manged by the defendants. The claimants were a flight club. Defendants had given claimants a license to operate casual flights out of the airport.
This license was to be renewed and the defendants released a tender to claimants and six other companies. On the tender it was clearly written that no tender will be considered if they missed the time and the date deadline.
The Postman forgot to clear the letterbox that day and the claimant’s deadline got missed due to which the defendants accepted a tender and lower price.
The claimants brought a claim against the defendants by saying that they were in a contract with us to consider our tender.
