EC has to relate to the flight concerned. Not the previous flight. And certainly not the flight before that! How far back can they go? They're won't be any EC's at all if 'count back' applies. :undecided

Sorry I am a bit flummoxed now. The flight back from Finland to Gatwick was delayed by over 3 hours. The reason being the emergency door needed attention before it got to Finland to make the trip back. In pure and simple terms the flight was delayed/late leaving Finland by over 3 hours.

Hi, I've just found out about this flight compensation stuff and wondered if someone could give me an opinion as to whether its worth me trying before I write to TUI again.
I tried to claim something back after the holiday in 2011 but Thomson flatly refused and I gave up.
My holiday was booked with First Choice which are part of Thomson and the original flights were scheduled for about 8am. A couple of weeks before the holiday they changed them to be around 2pm or 3pm.
In the end we sat in the airport until late in the evening - must have been close to midnight. We got into resort 4am the following day and missed a full day of the 7 day AI holiday in Majorca.
I think they gave several reasons for the delay at the time which were another airline (Thomas Cook) having spilled fuel on the runway and then the replacement plane we were supposed to use being defective.
Do these sound like reasons where they could reasonably say it wasn't their fault?
Any opinions appreciated. Thanks.
