Change of flight time - compensation?

I have a return leg of a journey booked with Easyjet (domestic flight). This was cancelled and I was put on a much earlier flight. Now I have been moved to a much later flight. Do I get some compensation because I will be waiting a lot longer in the airport for my flight e.g. refreshments?

    You suggest you booked a later flight in the first place. You do not have to wait at the airport, particularly as its in the UK. And no compensation unless the flight is delayed on the day, this is not a delay but a change of time. If it is a major change, you can probably cancel and get a refund but you still have to get home.

    Personal choice to arrive at the airport early, as you have been forewarned of the change in flight time.

    If easyJet have moved your flight by 5 hours, I think they will let you cancel for a refund if the new times don't suit you.

    No, you don't get compensation for this.

    Lets not be to hasty. When is your flight? If it was cancelled more than 14 days before the flight there is no entitlement to compensation. When were you informed of both time changes?
