Hi all,

 

This is probably an age old question, I have been trying to research this but am getting confused.

 

I was travelling from Rome on 18th March back to Gatwick. My Easy jet flight was supposed to be departing at 18.50, we did not get on the flight until 23.05 , ove 4 hours delay, this ment that we did not arrive a t Gatwick until 00.30 at which point no trains (we had purchased advanced tickets to make our return journey). I could not wait another 6 hours to get a train back as I was so exhausted I felt ill. i paid for a taxi home which cost £98.

 

The flight was delay due to technical isues. Easy jet have said that technical issues were included in ‘extraordinary circumstance’ and will not offer any compensation.

 

Any feedback will be gratefully received

Hi,

 

EU261 stipulates that the airline has an obligation to provide accommodation, refreshments and travel at the point where you are delayed. However, there is no monetary compensation for delayed flights and no compensation for consequential losses - anything offered by Easyjet would be goodwill which, as a low-cost carrier, I wouldn't hold your breath for...

EC 261/2004 doesn't stipulate compensation for delays but precedent case law on this (Sturgeon v Condor:http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=CELEX:62007J0402:EN:HTML) means that airlines are now legally bound to compensate on the same basis as if the flight had been cancelled if the delay to your arrival is 3 hours or more. This judgement has been appealed and we probably won't see a definitive judgement on the appeal until sometime next year but I would be confident the appeal will be overruled. In the meantime, a legal stay seems to have been applied to cases involving delay compensation in the UK.

 

The OP's option would seem to be to wait until the appeal has been ruled upon and then make the claim at that point. You have 6 years in the small claims track to start your claim.
