Air Passengers Delayed for 26 Hours Win Compensation

aircraft7In an important victory for tourists and business travellers alike, a group of more than 100 air passengers whose flight home from Florida was delayed by 26 hours have each won Euros 600 compensation for the stress and inconvenience they endured.

Lawyers had launched proceedings against a leading air carrier after members of the group came together via Facebook.

The airline agreed to settle the claims following a landmark Court of Appeal decision in another case which established that technical problems cannot be used to avoid paying flight delay compensation.

A spokesman for the group said after the settlement was agreed, “This is great news for consumers and we hope that this signals the dawn of a new era of a much easier and smoother process for claiming flight delay compensation.”
