Unformatted text preview: t but P refused to make use of them as they reminded her of bathing in her own bathroom at home. Amidst all the anxiety and frustration, P started to develop a migraine and soon became mentally anguished. Furthermore, P is extremely sensitive to cold weather and, as a result, she fell violently ill not long after. A doctor had to be specially called in to treat her, for which she had to incur an additional $1,000 (for consultation and medication). 4 LGST101 To make matters worse, P was informed on her last night at the resort that DDA had suddenly become insolvent and that all flights worldwide had been suspended with immediate effect. P desperately turned to the resort’s concierge for help and was surprised to learn that there were still seats available on AA’s return flight to Singapore from Tin Tin island. Unknown to P, AA had been operating daily return flights from Singapore to Tin Tin island for the past five years.
