Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)
Remember me:
durr, I forgot...

I've successfully claimed where my flight was cancelled and the airline initially rejected my claim citing bad weather on the preceeding flight as the cause.

After a spot of ressearch I wrote back - this was the case law I quoted about bad weather affecting a previous flight not being grounds for rejection of a claim :

..... the judgement in Jager v EasyJet in 2013 confirmed that adverse weather is not grounds for rejection of a claim under EC Regulation 261/2004 unless the ‘flight in question’ was directly affected by the weather. Specifically, Judge Benson ruled that weather conditions affecting a previous flight does not fall under the airline’s defence of extraordinary circumstances.

They paid up.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

When flying into Innsbruck with a EasyJet in early Feb the cloud cover was low and pilot let us know in taking off from Gatwick that there was a high chance of diversion to Munich. On approach to INN he reiterated again and said that he didn’t have enough fuel for a second approach if the first was unsuccessful. I have no idea if this is true or common. We actually managed to land in INN and skied that afternoon thank god as it was only a weekend trip.

However we pretty much always fly BA to INN and haven’t had any cancellations (except over NY with the huge amounts of snow and we took a flight next day home) but on many occasions we see EasyJet passengers bussed out of INN or EasyJet planes diverted.

Unless I have to I won’t fly Easyjet to INN. I don’t trust they will get me there.
