My friend is due to fly to Jersey today from Gatwick by Easyjet this morning and return to London from Jersey in the evening
Both flights are cancelled.
My question is which leg can she claim flight delay compensation for? I am of the opinion that he can definitely claim for the evening flight. The reason is as follows:
The return flight is 20:25 in the evening - BA have a scheduled flight at 20:10 from Jersey to Gatwick so the weather condition is definitely okay for this. Hence this is due to Easyjet not having a plane ready, and not force majeure
The outward flight is dubious. There were lots of flights flying out of Gatwick in the morning but unfortunately all the flights destined for Jersey were cancelled.
Knowing Easyjet, there is a real possibility that they would refuse to pay out. Just wondering if there is a chance expectation to get a pay out for the evening flight if my friend takes Easyjet to court.
