Easter flight cancellations to continue for days

The 62-year-old from Surrey was told on Monday morning their Gatwick flight had been cancelled. According to the data firm Cirium, a total of 1,143 flights were cancelled to and from the UK in the week up to 3 April, with 382 of them grounded over the weekend. Cirium said British Airways cancelled 662 flights to and from the UK last week, while EasyJet cancelled 357.British Airways took the decision two weeks ago to remove some flights, mostly short-haul routes, from its schedules until May.Aside from flight disruption, travellers hoping for an Easter getaway have also been affected by delays to the Eurotunnel and to ferry services. Passengers who receive little or no notice about their cancelled flight, and ultimately arrive much later at their destination, may be entitled to extra compensation payments. With many of the flights cancelled fewer than seven days before the scheduled departure, airlines are obliged to inform those affected of their rights - which can include putting them on a flight with a different carrier or getting a full refund.
