This is the second flight delay compensation case Bott and Co has won at the Court of Appeal in the last eight days.
This is a huge victory for passengers in what has been a David versus Goliath type battle against the airlines.
Because the Court of Appeal ruled in favour of Mr Dawson it is now expected that an additional four years of claimable flights will be made available to passengers.
This landmark case will set a binding precedent for the limitation period of all future flight claims in the UK.
As a Flight Delay Compensation specialist law firm representing Mr Dawson we estimate the decision affects over 11 million passengers and is worth in excess of €4 billion to consumers.
We have hundreds of litigated cases which have been stayed pending the outcome of the Dawson case, and thousands more ready to issue proceedings.
Reacting to the judgment shortly after it was announced, David Bott, Senior Partner at Bott and Co said: “This is a huge victory for passengers in what has been a David versus Goliath type battle against the airlines.
“We welcome the judgment and the much needed guidance it has brought to the flight compensation process here in the UK. Passengers will now know with far more certainty whether they are entitled to compensation.”
