If your flight is delayed, how much can you claim and how do you do it?
If your flight is delayed, in many cases you can claim compensation. A recent Supreme Court ruling (on October 31st) means that airlines can't refuse to pay delay compensation if the delay was caused by a technical fault. These rules cover all flights from the European Union (and some others) and mean you can get compensation if your flight is delayed by several hours. You may also be able to make a claim for delays going back up to six years.

Complaining about a holiday you're not happy with - what you can do
Delayed flights, costly car hire, dingy hotel...terrible food. What can you do if your holiday is ruined?
I think I've been fairly lucky with my holidays. Not all have lived up to expectations but there haven't been any nightmares. But every year thousands of people have holidays that go seriously wrong. Hotels haven't been built or facilities aren't completed, the swimming pool is a building site....staff are rude and the food is shocking. You know the kind of thing. If you've had a bad holiday, what can you do?
