My Seat Number was 61and already in Madrid I Make a claim that Seat belt was not in condition. Due to the timetable it could be fixed only stop place near Cordoba. The chauffer however showed me another place but it was impossible to sit there because that Seat could not be fixed to rest position and passengers in front of me used the maximum rest position. So I travelled without Seat belt untill Cordoba. Br Esko Mäntyniemi So
