A typo I know - but you’re spot on, they can.

EC261/2004 mandates simply that BA accommodates and feeds you. That does not give you carte blanche to charge them for 3 nights at a luxury hotel of...

Isn’t this the key issue?

BA would certainly be liable for accommodation etc if they’d cancelled the return leg of a return ticket, but would they if it’s a one-way ticket, given that as far as...

EC261/2004 mandates only for a part refund of the fare paid in the event of a downgrade. Anything above and beyond that is up to the airline and posts on another thread suggest BA’s policy has...

Indeed. He says it’s possible traffic could return to 100% of 2019 levels by next March.
