9. Planned itinerary/printout of a roundtrip airline ticket: We highly recommend you not purchasing travel
tickets until your visa has been approved.
This is the first 3 I looked up, because there are in English
Are there any Spanish Consulates that don't ask for airline tickets from EU family members
You and/or Pinkpanter may wish to point those things out to bith the EU and Spanish MFA (the MFA afterall says it's embassies do not ask for tickets/reservations by default, but they clearly do at most Spanish embassies!).

I believe that the Spanish vfs website has been updated in 2014. I remember when I applied visa as an EEA family member to travel to Spain in 2012 with my EEA wife, I was also asked the travelling ticket etc (but that was not mentioned on their website until this year). It was clearly stated that if you are a family member of an EEA, you do not need to provide airline ticket or hotel bookings etc. They just updated their website with unlawful requirements.

Pinkpanter have you applied for compensation/redress yet?
