Assessment of legal validity
Whether or not you are entitled to receive compensation depends on the European regulations. These regulations contain the criteria to determine what your rights are. Important regulations and judgments include:
- Regulation (EC) no. 261/2004;
- Regulation (EC) no. 889/2002 Montreal;
- Sturgeon case;
- Wallentin-Hermann case;
Based on these criteria, we are able to determine whether the airline can rightfully invoke force majeure, or extraordinary circumstances. Aside from these regulations, judges and national enforcement bodies also issue judgments that may be relevant to the validity of your claim.
