Passengers are pushing the boundaries on plane delay compensation claims.
The number of factors airlines can rely on to defend plane delay compensation cases are gradually being cut down by courtroom defeats.
In the case of Ash v Thomas Cook a bird strike was not deemed to be extraordinary; and in an appeal heard at Reading County Court earlier this year, a passenger came out on top and won against Monarch over a delay caused by a lightning strike. Full story here.
Regulation 261/2004 came into effect in 2005 and it enables passengers to claim plane delay compensation in the event passengers are denied boarding or face a cancellation or delay.
For a three-hour delay the amount of compensation airlines are required to pay out can be as much as £470.
Passengers are fighting back and coming out on top.
