Tech Delay - No Excuse!

Just listened to piece on BBC's 'You and Yours' reporting that the UK High Court has just ruled in favour of someone who brought a claim against a UK airline for delay compensation. The court decided that the airline's excuse for the delay, an aircraft technical problem, was not an 'extraordinary event' and that compensation under EU regs was payable.

Floodgates open? More airport standby? Or shock, horror, some spare aircraft capacity in the fleet?
