  • We want to say that we are really sorry that you had a flight delay with us.

    As you know, we wanted to fully investigate your claim for your flight delay but we had to wait until the Huzar vs. legal case had been heard.

    On 31st October 2014 a decision was made by the Supreme Court. This ruling confirmed that a number of technical incidents leading to flight delays can no longer be classified as extraordinary. This is different to previous guidance given by the UK CAA and other national enforcement bodies.

    We have accepted this new decision so we are now reviewing the new information and all of our customers’ cases in light of the recent change. As a result we are currently experiencing a higher volume of claims than normal so we’re sorry it could take us slightly longer to fully investigate your case and respond to you.

    We are taking steps in Customer Relations to look into each case thoroughly.

    Our first step is to send you an acknowledgement if you currently have an open case with Customer Relations so you know we are aware of your complaint and you might already have this.

    We will then look to investigate your claim to see if the decision has changed your outcome then we will contact you by email or letter to let you know.

    We will send you updates via e-mail/text message so that you stay informed throughout this process because it could a little longer than normal because of the volume we have.

    Thank you for understanding and being patient whilst we get to your case. As soon as we have acknowledged all of our customers cases, we will update you with another message here on our website to tell you the next steps.
