Under EC261 you would have been entitled to the full compensation but it’s UK261 that applies here and that may not entitle you to any compensation for an earlier arrival as the ECJ decision relating to this post dates Brexit.

Isn’t raynerdom entitled to half the compensation regardless? Also I’m in this situation, with the airline referring to their “policy” (to pay half, which they have done) and completely ignoring my references to the AzurAir case. What do you think is the best way to pursue it further?

If your case is under UK261, the Azurair case does not apply as the decision post dates Brexit so is not incorporated into English law. You could possibly make a case, but the wording of the one hour earlier/two hours later is very clumsy.
