This is an interesting one. For those of you who travel with EasyJet (or any other low-cost carrier, for that matter), you know how stringent its refund policy may be—one can even theorize that the carrier makes it so complicated in the hopes of passengers just giving up.
One didn't give up. He went to court refusing to accept that EasyJet would pocket baggage and seat fees for a flight he didn't take. The court sided with him:
Judge Arnold ruled easyJet's terms and conditions were 'unreasonable'.
He awarded Mr Rubens his £58 baggage and seat fees plus £50 legal costs.
This could very well have some implications for the future, even if EasyJet insists that its Terms and Conditions are clear and should be the end of it all.
