Often, we book a flight, pay for all the amenities, spend extra money choosing our favorite seats, and subscribe to all the add-on services, paying so many dollars only to ensure a better journey. Unfortunately, flights can get canceled or delayed anytime and anywhere without any reason. The real struggle begins when the airline authorities refuse to acknowledge the problem, let alone compensate for the same. Moreover, they cover up the matter by offering trivial things like travel credit, vouchers, etc., instead of giving a refund.

First, Lufthansa announced the cancellation of thousands of flights. The company reasoned this with Verdi's strike of ground personnel. This mainly affects the hubs Frankfurt (FRA) and Munich (MUC) yet also many other airports (Dresden, Berlin, Hamburg etc.). It is expected that the impact on routes etc. will last until Friday. Numbers of around 134,000 affected passengers are circulated. Secondly, Spanish unions USO and Sitcpla announced a strike period from August until January 2023 (yes, you've read correctly, around five months). The impact is yet to be seen. Solidarity. Right of collective bargaining and action. That's the heading of article 28 of the EU's Charter of Fundamental Rights. Workers are guaranteed to bargain and to strike for their interests. A strike always is disruptive. Yet, it is a risk inherent to every business including airlines. It's time for a reminder of your right's as passengers should you be affected

The global aviation industry is currently responsible for around 2% of all carbon emissions produced by humans. This makes up roughly 915 million tons of the world’s 43 billion ton yearly global output. While these numbers may seem astronomical, the aviation industry has actually made great strides in the past 50 years to lower its emissions while simultaneously improving the quality of flights. Let’s take a closer look at how the aviation industry continues to impact global carbon emissions, where the majority of these emissions come from, which airlines are the cleanest, and how the industry as a whole has improved over the years.

Although the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on the global airline industry over the past year and a half, airports across the United States continue to see millions of passengers pass through their doors every month. That being said, though, COVID-19 has reshuffled the rankings for which airport is the biggest and busiest in the nation. Let’s take a look at the top 10 busiest and largest airports in the United States and explore what makes them such influential travel hubs for not just the US but the entire world. We should state ahead of time that these rankings were compiled based on the total number of passengers transported through each airport, not the number of flights.

At the beginning of COVID-19, back when we were all obsessing about Carole Baskins, we saw pictures of all the way empty flights. Then there was a period where you couldn't fly at all unless you had a really good reason. Things started easing up a little bit in June, and as of December, Southwest and Delta will be the only airlines spacing the passengers on their flights. On one hand, the airlines are businesses, and they have employees to pay, but on the other - aren't they putting their passengers at risk of more than just air travel delays by packing them together during a global pandemic?

The whole global industry faces a high volume of economic challenges due to the brand new virus outbreak, Covid-19 Pandemic, that could never be predicted by the global capital flows. Unquestionably, one of the most affected is the airline industry that had to garage the aircrafts, cease the operations and cancel the scheduled flights due to the restrictions emposed for an uncertain period of time. At this very point, what already ticketed air travellers would welcome is to get the full refund paid for the product the airline company promised, but remained unprovided.

The current situation evolving around the Corona Virus affects daily life in many ways. One of them being the questions of how and if we travel. On the one hand, the confined space of an airplane makes the thought of either having or being exposed to the virus especially discomforting. People only use flights as a mode of travel if they have to. On the other hand, governments trying to slow down the infection rates establish visa bans or ban people from certain regions or with specific travel history. Finally, fewer bookings cause airlines to cancel flights or shrink their overall flight schedules and offers. This article aims at showing the consequences of a flight disruption caused by the Corona Virus in terms of passenger rights, meaning reimbursements for tickets, care like food/drinks and hotel accommodation or compensation.

This article - the third part of our series - briefly guides through this section of the airlines' obligations and respective rights of passengers. The fourth part compares the Canadian and the European regime under the Regulation (EC) 261/2004. As a reminder, rules regarding denied boarding, tarmac delays and lost or damaged baggage have already been in force since July 15th, 2019. The new set of regulations covers further obligations for canceled and delayed flights. The obligations in these events are similar and vary depending on the reason for the disruption (whether it has been within the carrier's control or not), the length of delay caused and the size of the carrier.

The logic is simple, you book your ticket with an airline and that airline is liable for flight disruptions. The legal logic is not quite that simple. Regulation (EC) 261/2004 (European Passenger Protection Regulation) uses the concept of the 'operating carrier'. That means the airline that actually undertook to transport the passenger faces the liability and obligations in case of disruptions (delay, cancellation and denied boarding). But those knowing a little about how the airline industry works have also heard of 'wet lease', 'dry' or 'code sharing'.

What happens when you skip a leg on an itinerary - Are you still eligible for compensation if your ticket becomes void due to no-show? Airlines' tariff systems are highly complex and nearly impossible to understand. Sometimes flights get more expensive the closer you get to the actual flight date. Sometimes the opposite is the case. The same applies to the distance flown. In not few cases, a longer (yet more indirect) flight is cheaper than a direct one. Airlines try to ensure that certain connections - mainly from tributary airports to their main hubs - are also profitable and used. They make them attractive with discounts.

The new Canadian Air Passenger Protection Regulations create a system of protection for passengers during disruptions. They help by standardizing compensations and treatments across the flight travel industry. Time will tell whether they actually are “world class” as branded by the government. The influence of airlines during the legislative and executive process is obvious. It inter alia explains exemptions to compensation rules for passengers. That specifically applies to the category of disruption reasons “within the airline's control but required for safety reasons”. Let's face it, the very majority of mechanical issues in air travel are safety-relevant. And it's clear that a lowering of safety standards is in nobody's interest. But keeping a plane safe is at the core of an airline's business. Therefore, it is unclear why it shouldn't have to compensate for disruption if it failed to conduct the business safely and on time.

Facing financial difficulties for airlines companies is no surprise due to the fierce competition. Since 2017, inter alia, the following airlines have declared bankruptcy Cobalt air, Air Berlin, Primera Air, Germania.

Long hours delay and cancellation of flights is becoming quite prominent in modern days and claiming compensation from airlines authorities are much of a challenge. The European Regulation EU261/2004, airlines are required to pay up to 600 € to passengers for the delay over 3 hours long as compensation for their inconvenience and time, excluding the price of the flight ticket. But the biggest challenge faced by passengers is circumventing the defense used by airlines which they call “Extraordinary circumstances”, the one is frequently used to avoid compensation. The EU Regulation 261/2004 is a common law which deals with the passenger compensation from the airlines in case of denied boarding, flight cancellation and long delay of flights.
