The fact is that a bird strike is, in the eyes of the law, within the airlines control which is absolutely ludicrous.
The bird strike may not be. What is fully within the airline's control is how they carry out the service recovery. This was getting progressively more passenger-unfriendly (and not only with airlines, other transport means as well) and the compensation etc is there as an incentive to sort things out very pronto.

What was absolutely ridiculous was a developing trend to leave pax isolated for the sake of operational convenience and minimising expenditure. A very major LCC who cancelled a flight on a 3 x weekly schedule from a holiday island where most were returning home, said the next 2 flights were full, and the only remedy was to rebook them a week later or give them their (just return leg) money back was the clincher for the EU politicians.

The idea that passengers are trying to claim anything and everything is untrue. What is true is that many airlines, in particular LCCs think they are above the law. Even when legitimate claims are due, it appears to be the norm to fend off, ignore & dismiss claims until the customer takes them to a court.
Surely if the court finds in favour of the customer(which is often the case) then it was a legitimate claim. However, would it not be better if LCCs had proper customer services and sorted out these issues without going to litigation.?
If the airlines had played fair in the first place, there wouldn't have been the need for the legislation in the first place.

Don't worry people, if ever the UK leaves the EU there will not be any EU 261 where people will be able to claim unless the government introduces it's own law, but by that time the likes of easy, Jet2 etc will have moved there registered office out of the UK to carry on their business unhindered.

... Or the government enacts EU261 in the same way non EU members like Norway, Iceland and Switzerland have in which case nothing changes.

Mr A Tis
The idea that passengers are trying to claim anything and everything is untrue.

There are some that might, but the vast majority won't.

An example of this is medical emergencies. It's not specified as an Extraordinary Circumstance within the regulations and it often results in a lengthy delay. However, I do not believe PAX, solicitors or claims companies have claimed compensation for this type of incident.

Most PAX do have compassion for anyone who becomes seriously ill during a flight and understand that it is not the type of situation to try to benefit from.

After all, but for the grace of God etc.

I'm almost certain that the British government will have to adopt all the EU laws and regulations that we now have due to the shortage of time to create alternatives before we leave.

I'd imagine that EU 261 is already enacted, it would be a case of un-enacting it?

All "EU" is only law if it's enacted into national law in the individual member state, which we in the UK do as a matter of routine. So all existing laws which came about at Brussels instigation are now part of UK law. The $64million question is which (if any) we choose to revoke/amend as/when we leave.

Don't normally post but really! Why the sarcastic comment and what 'loop' are you in? Is it the ambulance chaser or airline troll loop? Please read and digest the articles you provide links to! I'm pretty sure a judgment handed down by a small claims court does not set a precedent in law! Similarly the regulation will still apply to UK reg airlines when the disruption affects a departure from an EU member state, the same as it always has with all other non-eu airlines
operating EU to US for example. In my opinion the UK will keep the legislation I just hope they balance the scales i.e let's not have to fork out Ä400 to a pap delayed 180mins when they've only paid 9.99 for the ticket!

CrewMeal - Highlights some of the unprofessionalism I have seen over the last year.

Unprofessional, unfortunate. But lets have a sense of perspective. Its not the first time this has happened onboard a flight though it is rare. Also, i'm not so sure that this is representative of easyjet crew toledoashley.

Generally speaking I find easyJet crew to be some of the most friendly and professional crew I have seen. Not always totally polished (but thats not the business they are in) and you are more than likely met with a smile and a down to earth attitude when compared to some of the carriers i fly. Even on the one or two occasions where things have gone awry on my flights, i would go as far as to say that the easy jet crew were the saving grace.

easy jet summer release

I see that the release date has been brought forward slightly, from mid October to early October. Mind you,it was originally mid September.

Still a let down in terms of releasing schedules. People won't wait in anticipation of easyJet releasing their schedule. They'll simply book Ryanair or Jet2 who both have their schedules out for 2017. Isn't it about this time of year that base closures are announced? Usually last minute on a Friday afternoon?

Easyjet 2017

Hi ,
I also think easyjet when it comes to schedule release its too late in the year and the staggered sale for summer makes it harder for booking dates off work etc.

I do think it would make sence in releasing in may with the other companys ie jet2
I have noticed they will do routes that they are they sole opperate at easyjet which is good and lowest fares on release day does anybody know the spesific day as it will be a Thursday more than likely?

Last I heard it was a non EU airline who will be mopping up the subgroup TUIFly... Think the EZY collaboration is off.

I still believe the best chance of EZY getting an AOC via an airline purchase is Volotea.
