Less rare than delays, a flight being cancelled can have a dramatic impact on your financial circumstances. The airline has a legal responsibilities the go over and above just compensating you for the flight.
It’s common practice for an airline to overbook a flight, most flights are overbooked as the airline knows that there is always a percentage of no shows, so they are able to make money of passengers that never turn up.
However, this is a risky strategy and on numerous occasions it backfires and leaves the airline with an overbooked flight. If you have found yourself in this situation, then you are able to make a claim.
Types Of Claims We Can't Help With
Some of the claims that we cannot offer assistance with but are likely covered by your travel insurance.
You do have a legal right to make a claim if an airline has lost your luggage. There are two courses of action you can take. If you have travel insurance then you could make a claim with your provider.
You can make a claim with the airline directly however you cannot carry out both, as this is classed a profiting from an insurance claim and your insurance company will highly likely reject your insurance claim.
Delay Caused By A Strike
If the strike is delayed or cancelled due to the airlines staff taking industrial action, then you are able to make a claim for compensation. If it’s down to airport staff or other support staff that are not employed by the airline, then you cannot claim compensation.
I can remember the Icelandic volcanic ash incident that lead to thousands of cancelled flights. This type of incident falls out of he control of the airline and therefore they are not liable to compensate you for your losses under these circumstances.
Similar to natural disasters, hurricanes, tornados, heavy snow falls and other ‘acts of God’ that are out of anyones control can result in delays or cancellations. You cannot clam compensation for such incidents.
Refused Boarding Due To Intoxication, Drugs or Bad Behaviour
The airline has a duty of care to other passengers and they can refuse you entry to the aircraft. If you are under the influence of drugs, had too much alcohol or are behaving inappropriately then you cannot claim for compensation if you are refused entry.
None EU Airlines Unless Flying To An EU Country
Unfortunately if you are travelling with an airline that isn’t based in the EU or your flight wasn’t departing or returning to the EU, then we cannot help you claim compensation.
Political unrest is a major concern in certain parts of the world and when it interferes with the aviation industry you cannot claim compensation for a delayed or cancelled flight.
Security Or Safety Issues
Safety is a major concern and millions of flights are taken each year without any issue. Occasionally there are safety concerns onboard a plane or in an airport, and this take priority over whether the flight gets there on time or not.
Airline Has Gone Bust
Probably the worst of the bunch but when an airline goes bust there is very little you can do to be compensated for the inconvenience. You can claim through your travel insurance, cred card or ABTA.
