PETITION: Consumer/Passenger rights with regard to flight delays

EU Petition (sign the petition here)

Under Article 21 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the EU (TFEU), citizens have the right to move freely within the EU, however, this does not give airlines or airports the right to infringe on our consumer rights.  It is not always possible to reach your destination by car or bus and often the most convenient method of reaching your destination is by using commercial airlines.  In many cases, our consumer rights are infringed by airlines and airports, and we often to not have any right of recourse.  Many airports and airlines have placed the blame for this on COVID, but these problems existed long before the COVID pandemic.
