Were you offered a voucher for your cancelled flight from Paris? Here’s what you should do.

It is possible that, instead of a monetary refund, the airline offers you a travel voucher. We do not recommend accepting those, and here is why:

  1. If you accept a travel voucher, you will have to fly with the same airline in the future. Moreover, you will most likely have to use the voucher within a strict deadline set by the airline.

  2. If the airline ever goes bankrupt, you might find yourself having issues getting your money back.

Extraordinary circumstances disrupted my Paris flight — can the airline really deny my claim? 

There are some situations where the airline can rightfully deny flight compensation to passengers even though their flight was delayed by more than 3 hours or cancelled fewer than 14 days before departure. We call such situations Extraordinary Circumstances — these are the cases when the delay or the cancellation wasn’t due to the airline’s fault but to a third party or unforeseen event.

Here are some 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.

Don't worry—we'll look into the reason why your Paris flight was cancelled or delayed, saving you the trouble. For the purpose of ensuring that you receive your Paris flight compensation, our experts will compare internal and external aviation data.

How long can I claim for my delayed or cancelled flight from Paris?
