    Incoming flight delay 8th Aug 18 at 6:29 PM

    I ended up with a 4Hr+ delay due to the incoming flight being delayed. This was for a UK to New York flight. I can see that there may be extraordinary circumstances ie. weather, although I was not directly affected.

    Basically the aircraft has done a USA internal flight and been diverted elsewhere due to bad weather, then it's headed to it's original destination once weather has cleared. Then it's gone back to its base - New York - and then it's done a scheduled flight to the UK, and I was boarding the return leg - back to New York (delayed departure). So it's a kind of domino effect causing the delay.

    Reckon I have a claim under the EU rules?
