I must say that I can't understand the comments related to "I paid more for a certain flight so I am due compensation since I ended up on a flight that would have been cheaper at booking." With the volatility of tix, it could have just as easily been the other way around. You roll the dice every time you buy tickets, the price could either go up or down a thousand times before you fly.
You pay for a guarantee of a spot on a flight, subject to whatever happens to that flight on the day you travel. If that type of mentality was acceptable, we could all say "I wanted a cheaper flight, and since the flight I paid extra to be on didn't keep it's schedule, I want to only pay the price of a flight that was cheaper when I purchased mine..."
It just makes no sense???
