On New Year's Eve I was meant to be flying with easyJet from the north of the UK where I had been staying with my parents. A few hours before I planned to leave for the airport I read my flight was delayed ...then it was cancelled entirely. I had to rebook. The only alternative being two days later.
Is there any compensation due to me for this?
I know from the news that there was some problem with fog in London causing weather-based disruption there, however the weather was clear in the North. I think the problem there was due to the plane not being in place due to disturbances in the South. I strongly suspect from the low prices for flying on my original day that they made a conscious decision to cancel my flight to save another since a minimum of people would be disrupted.
Is there feasibly any compensation due to me for this delay?
It was a major annoyance which disrupted my plans for the last days of my holiday.
Exactly what are the rules for weather meaning airlines don't have to pay compensation, does it stretch down to knock-on effects?
