EasyJet flight delay compensation claims

History

EasyJet was founded in March 1995 by the then 28-year-old Stelios Haji-Ioannou, the son of a Greek shipping magnate. The company's first flight took off from London Luton and flew to Glasgow. During these early days, the company had no aircraft of its own but instead leased them from British Airways. The company grew rapidly by offering a no-frills service that allowed it to undercut the competition significantly. In doing so, EasyJet, along with Ryanair, significantly changed the face of air travel and brought down the cost of travelling across Europe.

Today the company has a UK fleet of 196 aircraft with an average age of 7.9 years. Sister operations EasyJet Europe and EasyJet Switzerland bring the total size of the fleet up to 395 aircraft. From its base in Luton, the company flies to 124 destinations. The company employs more than 8,000 staff and flew a record 80 million people in 2017.

EasyJet flight delays

EasyJet has a relatively poor record when it comes to flight delays. Overall we have ranked them 27th out of the 35 airlines operating in the UK. This is because 5.22% of all their flights have been delay by an hour or more while 0.53% of their flights suffer from a delay of three hours or more.

EasyJet flight delay compensation

Over the years, here at Fairplane, we have made thousands of claims for Easyjet flight delay compensation, but payment is rarely made unless we take the matter to the next stage and issue legal proceedings. We find this especially surprising when you consider the high-profit margins the company enjoys and also their poor record for delays.

You might think that, considering the considerable resources the company has at its disposal, EasyJet flight claims and other EasyJet compensation cases would be settled promptly, but this is often not the case in our experience.
