Flight Delays & Compensation

I recently travelled from Gatwick to Malaga on an Easyjet late afternoon flight.

It was delayed by almost four hours. Not sure how many readers are aware, but depending on distance of the scheduled flight and length of time delayed, you are entitled by European law to compensation. I am to receive four hundred euros shortly. Any flight delays you have experienced under qualifying criteria can be back dated up to six years, so it might be worth checking back through your old flights! (the only time they can evade paying out is for bird strike, which is something totally out of their control). For info.
