I was flying with LOT Polish Airlines to a non-EU/non-UK country. Can I still claim compensation?

Yes. As LOT Polish Airlines' headquarters are in Warsaw (Poland), the EU flight compensation laws apply to the airline. Even if you are flying with LOT Polish Airlines to North America, Asia or the Middle East, you are entitled to compensation if your trip is disrupted.

However, if a non-EU/non-UK carrier operates your flight, the situation can be different, as shown in the table below.

Extraordinary circumstances — can LOT Polish Airlines deny me compensation?

When a third party or force majeure causes a delay or cancellation, LOT Polish Airlines has the right to refuse compensation. These situtation are referred to as extraordinary circumstances.

Some of the most common extraordinary circumstances 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.
     

However, you should be aware that airlines sometimes claim that extraordinary circumstances occurred, even if that was not the case. This is sometimes used by airlines to avoid having to pay compensation.

Make sure that you keep the airline accountable with the help of our legal experts. At Flight-Delayed.co.uk, it only takes a few clicks to submit a claim and then our team will take care of everything for you! No win, no fee.
