If someone files a false travel customer complaint to airline officals, about false stuff that airline personall did even though there no find print or any terms and conditions can a airline prosicute someone
No. Private persons and businesses can never "prosecute" anybody for anything. Criminal prosecutions can only be brought before the Court by a prosecutor - a district attorney or (for Federal crimes) United States Attorney. (Contrary to popular belief, there is no such thing as "pressing charges," at least not for anyone other than a government prosecutor.)
That said, a false report of criminal or other unlawful conduct, if proved to be untrue, could expose a person making the report to criminal liability. Also, a business might have a civil cause of action for defamation of character. Defamation occurs when someone makes a false statement concerning someone (or some business) to a third party, and the person or business suffers a cognizable harm as a result. "Slander" is spoken defamation; "Libel" is printed. Libel is generally treated more seriously than slander, due to the lasting nature of the printed word. Defamation is not a crime; it is a tort, a civil wrong. That means that it is not "prosecuted" by the government, but it is something one sues for in civil court; and that the penalty, if it's found to have happened, is not jail time, but rather an award of damages - payment of money, to remedy the harm that was suffered.
Note that to be defamation, a statement must be proved to be false, and also must be made to a third party. If you tell an agent of an airline something negative and untrue about the airline itself, then that's not a statement made to a third party, and so shouldn't count as defamation even if the other elements are met.
That said, making false allegations may be legally actionable in other ways. For example, if someone does this with the intention of getting reimbursed for injuries than never really happened, that could constitute theft by deception, which /is/ a crime. Whether there were "terms and conditions" prohibiting this is irrelevant. We all have a legal duty to not try to defraud one another. Obviously it is strongly recommended that you not make false allegations to anyone.
