Flight Delay Compensation and Air Lingus Airlines
Flight delays can lead to compensation against Air Lingus if, for instance, your flight from New York to Bristol Airport by more than 3 hours or more. The other criteria for passengers to make a claim are as follows:
- Air Lingus flight delay was within the last 6 years
- Air Lingues flight delay was not due to an “exceptional circumstance.”
Flight delays compensation and “exceptional circumstances.”
It was thought by Airlines that if the flight delays were due to mechanical or electrical failures which could not routinely be detected by the usual service and maintenance of the aircraft.
This argument was put to the test in court but the airlines failed. Even if it was a mechanical fault with the plane, it did not stop the chance to make a flight delay compensation claim against Air Lingus or other Airline Companies that breach the EU Regulations.
The exceptional circumstances can be summarised as follows:
- Volcanic ash cloud,
- Traffic Control Strikes,
- Political Unrest,
As such examples are completely outside Air Lingus control, compensation for flight delays can be obtained
