Cancelled or Delayed?

The wonderful new EU regulations on compensation for cancelled flights, is suffering from turbulence.
Rules intended to provide compensation to stranded airline passengers are in disarray because of disagreements over the difference between delays and cancellations.
The airlines tend to prefer to call problems delays rather than cancellations, the passengers are not convinced. This is the expected result of bureaucrats trying to run the private sector. Costs rise, companies have to deal with unnecessary complexity and the consumer does not get the benefit promised.
