    Flight Change after 5 hour delay

    Flight Change after 5 hour delay 11th Jul 17 at 10:17 AM
    Hi. I was travelling up to Edinburgh, and was due to leave at 8.15am, and land in Edinburgh at 9.40am. The flight was delayed to 12.00pm. We were advised to book on the 1.35pm flight, which I did. This flight was also delayed, and I didn't land into Edinburgh until 4.40pm.
    I have claimed for compensation, and Easyjet refuse because I did not travel on the original flight. Is this correct? Have I lost out because I followed the advise of Easyjet ?
    Could anyone please advise on my next course of action.

    Sorry, the flight kept being put back from 8.15am, to 10.00am, to 12.00pm, and
    then finally 2.00pm. When asking the Easyjet staff if the flight would actually take off at 2pm, they said they did not know when the flight would take off, if at all, and stated we should look to catch the 1.35pm flight.
