A History Of Flight Delay Compensation
In October 2012, the European Court Of Justice (ECJ) in Luxembourg, delivered a groundbreaking judgement, when it ruled that EU airlines were duty bound to compensate passengers for flight delays of three hours or more.
Prior to this, the ECJ ruled in 2004 that airlines were required to pay compensation for passengers involved in particular cancellations and delays.
Compensation was paid out in the form of, refreshments, meals, hotel rooms, airport transfers and free telephone calls.
In 2009, the ECJ stated that that passengers whose flights had been delayed, would be treated as if their flights had been cancelled – only if their flight was delayed for a period of over three hours or more.
However, this ruling was not met kindly by a consortium of airlines, consisting of BA, Easyjet, TUI Travel and the International Air Transport Association who launched a high court challenge in London to protest the law change. The case was then referred to the European Court Of Justice in August 2010.
