x3. Infant was $16 in fees. Dan posted the sale in August.
Wouldn't have thought infants would be eligible for compensation if they weren't seated. Good to know.

Even more than that - one of the people in our party decided to stay in Europe and didn't even show up for the flight. But he's getting 600 EUR anyways. EU261 is clear about all this, it's a shame that the USA doesn't care about the paying passenger.

But then again, this is the land of private medical insurance :-[

Makes you wonder if it's worth it to specifically fly EU carriers to EU if price is similar to a US carrier.

I believe yes. Am booking to London now, and am def choosing BA over AA.

Better make sure your flight is before maybe or who knows what protections you'll get post brexit.

In Jan, so am good to go. BTW all the kind of laws will be post-Brexit too, according to my understanding of May's current deal.

It goes both ways. Many would say if you over regulate an industry, it clauses higher prices and its worse for the consumer overall.

No. Ukraine is not in EU. They will deliver the bags and game over.

What CC was used to book? That's your hope now.

Would you mind sharing? Google makes it sound that the airline is at will to provide basics. That's like $50 a day tops (at least with US airliners).

What more can they get?
