In Topic: Easyjet - Bunch Of Wankers

Finally got a reponse from Easyjet and they are now trying to claim extraordinary circumstances and deny any compensation claims .


Apparently the flight was cancelled due to "thunderstorms " in the area , although there were no other delays to any other flights or any issues with any other airlines that evening . When I questioned this , I was told the thunderstorms may have been 24 hours previously !


I have contacted Newcastle airport and asked them if they can clarify what the weather conditions were at the time , if any other flights were cancelled or delayed and i`m awaiting a response .


Think they are extracting the urine and trying to get out of paying out , especially as we were handed a leaflet by the check in staff detailing what we could claim for under the circumstance !

Fair enough and that's what the compensation is in place for. However the OP seems - unless I'm reading it wrong - to be looking for redress for consequential loss when it isn't apparent that there is any.

If I'm flying to Belfast and then taking an onward train journey which I miss because the flight is delayed and I have to pay for alternative onward travel to Dublin, then I would be entitled to compensation for that (I've no idea if the regulations cover that but that seems fair to me).

However, if I'm rebooked on to a flight direct to Dublin, which means I don't have to take the train, I'm not subject to any additional expense in getting to my ultimate destination so I'd be completely unreasonable in looking for a refund of the train ticket, which I'd paid for but not used.

Easyjet didn`t book us onto the Dublin flight , by the time we got to the front of the queue , the only option they were offering us were seats on the Sunday night flight into Belfast ! We sorted the flights ourselves at out additional expense , via Aerlingus ( and our own pet travel agent ) . The airline had no idea where our ultimate destination was .

The fact is we were travelling with our wives and the original plan was that they stayed in Belfast on Saturday went shopping and had cocktails etc, while we went down to the match and back up afterwards on the bus . Ultimately we got we went for,  but our wives` had to spent the first night of their weekend away  in a 3rd rate airport hotel , get up at the crack of dawn to catch a flight to Dublin , instead of having a leisurely morning shopping , then travel up to Belfast by bus ( with our luggage as well as theirs` ) .

Not trying to screw anyone , just asking if anyone had previous experience of the situation and to make we were claiming for everything we were entitled to .

To be fair to them , they handed me the leaflet regarding to EU regulation about compensation at the helpdesk , so I don`t think it`s an issue on that front .


It`s just that I paid for 3 hotel rooms we didn`t use ,a transfer from the airport to the city,  and the bus between Belfast and Dublin and because we flew into Dublin we had to book 3 seats back to Belfast

Supposedly entitled to £183 each according to that link above and should be due a refund for cancelled flight .

 Trying to find if we can claim for monies already paid out  ( Belfast hotel booking for Friday night , airport transfer to city centre and bus to Dublin and new flight we booked  ) , but I don`t know if we are entitled to claim for that as well ?

E-mailed Easyjet and got generic reply that i`ll be contacted in 7-10 days ! Tried phoning and was left on hold for 20 minutes before i gave up .

We have booked ours , not sure what time we go as my mate organised it . Seems like there are a few troops going this route and i`d imagine there might be a few Republic supporters` doing the same .
