Today in the Royal Courts of Justice in London the Judgement was announced in the Jet2.com v Ronald Huzar appeal case hearing. The appeal by Jet2.com against the earlier ruling by your Honour Judge Platts in the Manchester County Court was dismissed and therefore the Courts upheld the previous decision in favour of Mr Huzar and refused Jet2’s argument that technical and mechanical failures can be classified as “extraordinary circumstances”.
Jet2.com requested permission to appeal the decision but this was also declined. This is excellent news for passengers with regards to flight delay compensation although Jet2.com may now lodge an appeal to the UK Supreme Court.
The detailed judgement is attached. @ Huzar v Jet2 Appeal Case Judgement 11th June 2014
