Hi all, we were booked to fly from Budapest to Manston Airport in Kent on 1st April at 14.10, with EUJET.
After we checked in the flight came up as "Delayed" on the airport TV screens.
There was no info at all from MALEV the handling agents, we did not manage to speak to someone from them until about 9pm.
The "Delayed" persisted until about 8pm when one of the 65 passengers waiting noticed it changed to "Cancelled".
We had to leave the airport with our lugagge and checked in again the next morning (new boarding passes) when the flight left at 09.45 , the same plane being used which had been parked up at the airport all night.
By the way we did not get any phone calls or vouchers, and we could not get our luggage back at the airport any earlier otherwise some of us would have taken a BA or AerLingus flight back the same day.
Malev did put us up in a hotel and we got a basic meal there and a carrier bag snack for breakfast, and a bus transfer each way.
EUJET said it was because of fog at Manston and the crew were out of hours to fly back the same night. But they only told us this when we were on the plane the next morning , we were about 20 hours late.
My question is - for the purposes of the compensation (if any) does this count as delayed or cancelled?
I have boarding cards for the same flight number on 2 consecutive days, but EUJET would not give any passengers any sort of paperwork about the delay.
I was sent the renewal notice for my annual travel insurance from Halifax this morning, guess where that's going - in the bin.
If I was going to defraud an insurance company it would be for a 5 grand rolex, not a £30 delay.
