Extraordinary circumstances — can Eurowings deny me compensation?

We call extraordinary circumstances situations in which the delay or cancellation is not the fault of the airline. If any of the below apply to your flight disruption, you might not be entitled to flight compensation.

  • 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.

However, you should be aware that airlines sometimes claim that extraordinary circumstances happened while it was actually not the case.
