telegraph.co.uk: Passengers on delayed flights should get compensation, EU court confirms
I know that discussions periodically arise regarding EU-related compensation. Thus far it's only applied to European carriers and non-EU carriers' flights departing the EU.
Is it possible, at some point, they could try to extend the call for compensation for all flights to/from the EU?
I am not surprised that EZ, and I'm sure others, are not happy about the ruling.
The EU's court of justice ruled that passengers whose flights arrive more than three hours late are entitled to compensation of up to €600 (£488) each unless the delay is due to extraordinary circumstances outside the airline's control, such as strikes or bad weather.
In confirming its interpretation of EU law, the court reiterated that passengers delayed could suffer similar inconvenience to those on cancelled flights and therefore should be similarly recompensed.
