The group, who are all aged between 59 and 72-years-old, said they were left with no alternative but to arrange their own transportation home - forking out hundreds of pounds for tickets on a Ryanair flight to London and the hire of a self-drive mini-bus to get back to Bristol. “Clearly, the CEDR decision in our case could apply to other passengers on affected flights and, while many will have been deterred from pursuing their right to compensation following initial rejection by the airline, they might be encouraged to do so in the light of our success,” he added.
