UK Supreme Court Rules Against Jet2 And Thomson

Fri Oct 31, 2014 2:47 pm

The long-running battle about EU flight delay compensation has finally been resolved in the UK as the Supreme Court refuses Jet2 and Thomson permission to appeal against the Court of Appeal decision that technical issues are not extraordinary circumstances (in the Jet2 case) and that claims can be brought up to six years after the event (in the Thomson case).

I'm particularly pleased as it means Are Lingus will now have to settle my claim for compensation resulting from a cancelled flight due to technical problems.

It was a bit obvious that the court would refuse these appeals.

Now if only they would do something similar for the rail system in the UK...

This is great news! Now I can get BA to pay me all that money they owe me Under the Passengers Rights legislation that I am due, but they always hid behind technical issues and "Extraordinary Circumstances", even when most of the cancelled/delayed flights were from LHR.
Now the problem is just getting them to respond, as it usually takes them on average two-months to respond to passenger complaints.
BA, hands down, has the worst Customer service I have ever come across...
