Pleased you got some movement, even if it was not exactly what you wanted.

LP, unfortunately if one uses the right to reimbursement at such a late stage in the day, other options are often only available in higher fare buckets and the consequential losses can be high; these are not covered under EC261 and so it would become a matter of sueing the airline, who would most likely resist.

As a non-lawyer, I don’t know how realistic such an action would be and it is a weak link in EC261, sadly.
