Extraordinary circumstances — can the airline deny me flight compensation? 

Unfortunately, they can. Even if your flight was delayed by more than three hours or cancelled at the last minute, the airline may deny you compensation based on extraordinary circumstances. These are situations in which the not the airline, but rather a third party or an unforeseen event, is to be blamed for the disruption.

Here are some common examples of extraordinary circumstances:

  • Bad weather conditions, such as thick fog, heavy rain, or thunderstorms.

  • A strike, most often specifically within the aviation industry (for example, a strike of air traffic control workers at a specific airport).

    However, a strike of the airline's crew is not considered an extraordinary circumstance!

  • Political circumstances, such as a terrorist attack or general security risk due to political unrest.

  • Natural disasters, including volcanic eruptions and hurricanes.

  • A collision between the aircraft and birds or other foreign objects.

  • An ill or unruly passenger.

  • Flight delays caused by the airport staff, such as extraordinarily long queues to security checks.
