Letter sent to The Daily Mail re article ‘Why you could lose if there’s another ash cloud’, 4 May 2011

May 4th, 2011

It is not “European bureaucrats” who will make decisions on changes to compensation for travel delays or any other aspect of the air passenger rights legislation. The European Commission, the EU’s executive, has announced a review and will make proposals after a public consultation, but any changes will be made by the European Parliament and the Council, of which the UK government is a member.

If your readers have strong views on these passenger rights, they should take part in the consultation when it is launched and get in touch with their MP and MEP, so they can be represented in the discussions on the legislation next year.
