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???
With all due respect to the OP, s/he did not claim any entitlement to compensation. S/He simple presented a case and asked. The general consensus was "no, nothing is due." but it was just a question, and not a demand.

Cheers.
