Air India has over the years built up a strong reputation as one of the best airlines in the world but they still struggle with flight delays and cancellations. Popularly reasons behind delayed or cancelled flights include illness of one or more number of crew members, technical defects, unavailability of spare parts for aircraft repair and maintenance, Bird strikes and Storms.
Your Rights as an
In principle, the airline is meant to inform passengers of an impending cancellation of flight. In a situation where notice is given more than 14 days before scheduled departure date, then the airline is mandated to make a replacement available. Where this is not the case, the airline is forced to pay compensation to affected passengers. Compensation is also paid to passengers whose fight has been delayed for at least 3 hours and amount payable as compensation is solely dependent on the flight distance and not the ticket price. It must however be noted that Airlines are not to be held responsible if delay or cancellation of a flight is as a result of exceptional circumstances such as Bird strikes or Storm.
