    Hello can anyone advise please. I applied for compensation for an 8 hour delayed flight. I applied 2 months before the 6 year deadline and heard nothing back, even though I know it was definitely received by them. Then suddenly 1 week after the 6 year deadline they say my claim is unsuccessful as it's too late. Apparently if it's filed with the court after 6 years then it's too late. I feel like they have deliberately left it late. Thanks for any advice :-)

    that is correct...you need to have commenced court proceedings within 6 years of the flight date. When you heard nothing back within a couple of weeks, you should have quickly issued a NBA, given a deadline for response and then started court proceedings. Having left it so late, most airlines would let it drag over the 6 years so it is timed out
    Shame you didn't post on here earlier

    Hi Laurajoanne1979,

    I'm sorry to say that in reality you left it 5 years and 10 months too late.

    Had you started your litigation within the 6 limitation period, in England, Wales and NI, then they would still have a case to answer. Unfortunately the airlines are masters of timing claimants out.

    There really isn't anything you can do now except remembering for the future.
    Please read Vaubans superb guide.

    Not sure how to copy quotes into this thread. New to this :-).

    I know everyone has said I left it too late but I didn't even know that compensation for delayed flights was a 'thing'. It's only because I heard it advertised on the radio just before I applied. Also as a person with no legal knowledge of how any of this works, I thought as long as I made the initial application (through the Resolver website) before the 6 years, I thought I would be ok. Nowhere does it say that it has to be filed in court before this time. I think the whole thing is very unfair, and the fact that the airline has dragged this out to over the 6 year mark is very sneeky of them. We were stuck in Manchester airport for over 10 hours in total with a severely autistic child who got very stressed out, we lost the first day of our holiday and all we got was vouchers for lunch. We weren't even offered a room in the airport where we could take our child to get out of her wheelchair and have time out in a secure room. The whole process was awful :-(

    The time limits have noting to with the airlines. They apply to all Court cases, not just airline claims. Some limits are less, especially personal injury claims which is 3 years.

    LJ 79 - its statute of limitations, not the airlines. Yes they wil play you to run out of time, they are a business, they have no compassion other than to their shareholders.
    The fact that you were not aware of the compensation rules is irrelevant I'm afraid. Ignorance is not valid in law, alas.
    Maybe next time, as 12 years after the regulation came into effect, the airlines are still abusing passengers.

    Easyjet does not comply with CEDR's decision
    Hi, anyone can give me some suggestions? I don't know what to do now.
    CEDR has already ruled that I won the case, and Easyjet suppose to comply with their decision by mid-march, but so far Easyjet has not responded, nor pay the compensation, how can I chase up with the case? what should I do next? shoud I contact Easyjet directly?
    Many thanks.

    Have you contacted CEDR to say that payment has not been made 2 months on?
    If so, then make a complaint to CEDR and make a complaint to CAA. It probably won't help in your individual case but the more that CAA are made aware of airline's refusal to abide with the law, the more likely they may do something about it.
    You will have to contact EJ with a Letter before Action (see Vauban's Guide) . The likelihood of indefensible court action may prompt EJ to pay up.
