Judge Claims Airlines Should Compensate Passengers up to £480 for Flight Delays

Yesterday a top EU judge claimed that airlines should compensate passengers who have flights that are delayed for more than three hours.  An advocate for the cause, General Yves Bot, says that passengers who experience flight delays of three hours or more should be compensated as are those who are compensated for flight cancellation.  British Airways, easyJet, and Thomson Holidays owner TUI have challenged this idea, but Yves Bot advised the EU Court of Justice that passengers should be given compensation of between between £200 (350 euros) and £480 (600 euros), depending on the distance of their flight.

Current regulations, that came into effect in 2004, require that passengers whose flight has been cancelled or who have been denied boarding be compensated for their flight.  Yves Bot wants to see this compensation extended to those who experience lengthy flight delays and says it would apply to Eu flights and EU-based airlines.  However, industry experts say that this could cost the airlines £1billion per year in compensation.
