Ha ha Ryanair loses EU court battle

Oh dear – Ryanair (they of the rip off extra charges) has lost the latest round of a legal battle to avoid paying for hotels, meals and drinks for passengers affected by the Icelandic ash cloud volcanic eruption in 2010.

Denise McDonagh, of Dublin, sued Ryanair in the Dublin Metropolitan District Court for €1,129, the costs she incurred as a result of the cancellation, she said that during her seven-day wait for a Ryanair flight from Faro to Dublin she spent £1,000 on accommodation, food, and transport. The airline refused to reimburse the full cost of the week she was forced to stay in Portugal.

The Dublin court asked the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg for an interpretation of the regulation.

Advocate general of the European Court of Justice Yves Bot said yesterday that airlines were obliged to pay the costs incurred by passengers whose flights were disrupted by “extraordinary events” like the volcano.
