However, there are times when the airline is unable to offer flight compensation for your delayed or cancelled flight. These are the so-called "extraordinary circumstances," which arise when a third party or unforeseeable event caused the delay or cancellation and not the airline.
Here are a few examples of those situations:
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.
This is dependent on the relevant laws of the country of departure, the country of arrival, and the country where the airline is headquartered.
For instance, if you took an Air France flight from Rotterdam The Hague Airport to London Heathrow, you may submit a claim under the following categories:
Dutch law: 2 years
British law: 6 years
French law: 5 years
