    If the was fog at your airport delaying or cancelling your incoming or actual flight home then probably no compensation due. But, how long were you delayed due to the cancellation. If you don't get payment within 3-4 days send an email marked as NBA with your case reference etc giving 14 days. Then send court papers in.

    Hello all,

    Quick question for those of you whom have been successful with their delay flight compensation request.

    EasyJetsent me an email on the 4th of August to tell me that my claim had been reviewed and I was entitled to compensation; in this email they mention I need to allow at least 14 days for the money to arrive in my account. It has been over a month but so far I have not received anything.

    Any advise will be much appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Send them a LBA with 14 days notice of court action. See Vaubans guide, details below here, for LBA template etc.

    Good luck.

    Hi marksct,

    CEDR only seem to charge a fee if the claim is vexatious or deliberately pointless. I don't know of any cases where a failed claim has resulted in a charge, so don't let that put you off referring to CEDR.

    Good luck.

    CEDR almost as slow as airlines in response.
    Claim submitted 13/08. Took them until 30/08 to decide they wanted more information from me, submitted that day.
    2 days after their own deadline of 13th Sept, not a dickie bird, despite a query.
    Experience so far?
    Very Slow process.
    Website very cluncky and not easy to use.
    Poor communication.


    If I'd gone MCOL could have all been over by now...

    Not sure that agree agree that MCOL would have been quicker. They have 28 days to file a defence, then directions questionnaires sent out and finally a hearing date. Date will be at least 3 months on.

    NBA = notice before (court) action
    (sometimes called LBA - Letter before action)

    Cheers Caz,


    I'd looked up LBA, didn't realise NBA mean's the same thing.


    One question for anyone who knows. What is the correct order of procedure here, should I make a formal complaint to EasyJet first or just hit them with the NBA?

    No point messing around, that's what they want.
    Just send the NBA/LBA.
    Hopefully payment will follow promptly.

    Hi Everyone,

    Looking for advice. Flight with EasyJet from Edinburgh to London Gatwick was cancelled (and we've been confirmed compensation for this, though haven't seen it yet). EasyJet booked us onto flights that day from Edinburgh to London Stansted as no more Gatwick flights that day. I had trains booked from LGW to the city and these were missed. EasyJet staff told us that we would be reimbursed for new transfers from Stansted to the city, so we booked a taxi. I've put in a reimbursement claim for the taxi but it's been denied on the grounds "After checking the details of the disrupted flight, unfortunately we cannot offer you reimbursement for the alternate transport you arranged as we had flights available within 48 hours." Is this correct? If it's not, how best to dispute?

    Thanks!

    Today I received the 627 expenses from EasyJet.



    Only 12 or 13 weeks since the flight was cancelled on June 21st.

    No, it's not correct. EU261 says that when you are rerouted to a different airport serving the same area, "the operating air carrier shall bear the cost of transferring the passenger from that alternative airport either to that for which the booking was made, or to another close-by destination agreed with the passenger" (my italics). The potential problem, of course, will be to prove that you in fact made this agreement with easyJet staff since I'm guessing you got nothing in writing.

    Yeah unfortunately nothing in writing, I assumed that the EasyJet staff at the airport were telling the truth and that this would all be straightforward! This is my first cancelled flight, I've learnt so much. I'll try to dispute it, but it might be a lost cause! Thanks!

    I would not give this up. It is an unarguable fact that your flight to Gatwick was cancelled and that you were transferred to Stansted. That, plus your own evidence will be more than enough to convince a Judge of your claim. If EJ want to contest it in court they will have to call the person who rearranged your flight as a witness to give evidence that you are lying. So I recommend a 14 day LBA and if they still don't pay, sue them.

    EJ have just responded to my NBA/LBA email regarding expenses refund... of 19th July......... 2 months after taking them to court and getting paid...

    The reply rambles on about looking into my "compensation claim".
    There is no mention of a compensation claim in my email.


    I really do wonder how they run a company if they they have numpties like this working for it.


    On a positive note CEDR has finally got of the ground and EJ have until 12 October to defend or pay up for the compensation claim.

    This case only goes to show that the airlines will plod along with cases in their own time and it is only when someone sta rats Court prodceedings that they sit up and start treating the matter seriously.
