Sometimes, the airline will reject your claim for compensation with the reason that the delay was caused by extraordinary circumstances – also known as force majeure.
Extraordinary circumstances are beyond the airline’s control and for this reason, you won’t be entitled to a compensation. Extraordinary circumstances include:
- bad weather
- natural disasters
- strikes in some cases
- terror threats
Often you may also find that the airline wrongfully rejects your claim for compensation with this reasoning. Therefore, it is important to be aware that when the delay is caused by airplane problems like technical faults, the cargo, or crew, in many cases you will be entitled to a compensation.
At Myflightrefund.ca we know which circumstances that are extraordinary. We can tell whether you are entitled to compensation, and in cases where the airline gives a reason that is not extraordinary, we will take the case to court.
