Recently a flight was cancelled and I think I was mistreated. On the day, about 5 of the flights from the airport got cancelled, they claimed it was because of bad weather. I had to wait for two more hours after my estimated departure time only to get information that my flight was cancelled.
However, 5 minutes from the information being anounced, another airlines plane departed from the same airport, and other departures were also succesful.
I did not get any re-routing options and was told I can re-book or refund at their website. They did not have any available flights until after more than a week and therefore I am not able to get home for Easter. I cried all day as I am spending Easter alone now.
Am I eligible for compensation? Shall I challenge the airline that the weather conditions were not to be considered as extreme circumstances?
