I've had a terrible run of delayed flights recently All of the last 5 flights over the last 2 months I have been on have been significantly delayed - a total of a 16 hour delay - over 3 hours delay on average per flight. I've never gad a run like it. (4 of them were ryanair. I was always a ryanair fan but i've now definitely changed to any other airline if it is a viable option.) Last nights flight with Ryan air was delayed by 5 hours. The reason given by pilot was 'Air traffic control'. Pretty much no other flights on the board were delayed to any significant amount of time other than my one. As per EU regulations you are entitled to a compensation of EUR250 if you arrive more than 3 hours late at your destination. However - this excludes extraordinary exceptions such as weather etc. I see in EU regulation that Air traffic control is also an exception. So what's to stop Ryanair just saying it was Air traffic control? I certainly wouldn't put it past them. If they had to pay out €250 to each passenger it would cost them €50k. IS there anything I can do here? IS there any website for example that states official reason why flight was delayed other than taking Ryanairs word for it?
