Nevertheless, cancelling beyond this timeframe may lead to the possibility of not receiving a refund. To obtain precise information regarding potential compensation options for flight cancellations, passengers are advised to refer to Qatar Airways' specific policies.

Extraordinary circumstances — can Qatar Airways deny me compensation? 

Qatar Airways reserves the right to refuse compensation when a third party or force majeure causes a delay or cancellation. These situations are referred to as extraordinary circumstances.

Some of the most common extraordinary circumstances that allow Qatar Airways to deny your claim are:

  • 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.

Keep in mind, however, that airlines might claim that an extraordinary circumstance occurred, even if this was not the case. They do so in hope they can avoid having to pay you compensation.

Don't be taken in by the airline's false arguments. Check online to see if you qualify for flight compensation.
