CANARY ISLANDS, Spain, Aug. 9 (UPI) -- Low-cost air carrier easyJet says it will pay $3,360 to a British family stranded in the Canary Islands after the pilot forgot to renew his license.

The couple, Nicola and Robert Starkie, and their two young daughters were planning to head home from Las Palmas on Grand Canary after a wedding, but when they got to the airport, they found their flight was canceled because the pilot's license had expired, The Times of London reported Saturday.
