Well I’m confused…. My understanding was that you were covered if your travel departed or ARRIVED in a EU(UK) country. If it were 2 separate tickets then it would be different, but if it was one ticket then I don’t see why it shouldn’t apply.

Because the operating carrier (AA) of the first flight is a third country carrier departing from a third country so the pax only has UK261 for the transatlantic flight as that was on BA in this case. The fact it was all on one ticket makes no difference.
