Ooh look, they found a new excuse!
Dear Mrs Hailey,
I'm very sorry for any inconvenience we may have caused you following the disruption to your flight to Edinburgh.
Our aim is to operate all our flights safely and on time. We do all we possibly can to minimise disruption but unfortunately on some occasions we're unable to keep to our schedule.
The compensation rules set by the EU clearly state that if the disruption is within our control you are entitled to compensation and if it considered 'extraordinary' then no compensation is payable.
Having looked at the details of your flight EZY 813, I can confirm that the reason for your disruption was due to Air Traffic Control Strike. This event is classified as "extraordinary" under EC Regulation 261/2004 as it was outside of our control. This means that in this instance there is no compensation payable.
More information including your 'notice of rights' and the full policy is available on our website:
Once again I would like to apologise for the inconvenience caused and hope to welcome you on board again soon.
