Compensation Rules Stay

The travel industry challenged the EU's stupid compensation rules at the ECJ. It was not to be.

European Union rules requiring airlines to pay passengers compensation for long delays and flight cancellations are valid, the EU's top court ruled on Tuesday. Airlines had complained about the rules, which took effect last year, saying they were too costly and required payment for conditions that were sometimes out of the carriers' control.
What di they expect? Its not like the ECJ is independent or anything. Now we will all have to pay more for airline tickets to serve the EU's compensation culture.
