Q. In January, I was stranded in Perth in Australia because Air Mauritius changed its itinerary without informing me. I arrived at the airport to find my flight had departed the previous day. I was four days late returning to work, lost pay and incurred costs totalling £730, but Air Mauritius will pay me only €600 (£500). While in Perth, I unsuccessfully tried to persuade Air Mauritius to send me home using another airline. After ignoring my emails, Air Mauritius eventually offered me €600, saying: "As previously advised, your settlement has been set out by the EC Regulation 261/2004 and will not be increased." But I believe Air Mauritius has a legal and moral duty to pay for all my extra costs incurred because of the schedule change, so I have refused its offer. RD, by email.
