About GermanWings and Reasons for flight Delay or Cancellation
Germanwings is a German low-cost airline based in Cologne and a subsidiary of Lufthansa. It is the third largest airline in Germany. Its main hubs are Cologne Bonn Airport, Stuttgart Airport, Hamburg Airport, Berlin Tegel Airport and Düsseldorf Airport. Because it is a low airline and in order to meet up with competition from other low cost airlines, wrong decisions are sometimes made which results in either a flight delay or a cancellation. Circumstances such as bird strikes, storms, illness of one or more crew members are all contributing factors.
Your Rights as an Air-Passenger
In the event of an impending cancellation of flight, Germanwings is obligated to notify you as soon as possible of the cancellation. If this happens up to 14 days before your scheduled trip, the Airline must offer you a replacement flight or an alternative transport option and you can then decide if you want to accept the offer or have your money refunded back. You will be entitled to additional monetary compensation if your flight is cancelled at a very short notice. For flight delays, a passenger must have been made to wait for at least 3 hours before claims can be laid and the amount payable is solely dependent on the flight distance and not the ticket price. It must be noted however that Airlines are not to be held responsible if a flight delay or cancellation occurs as a result of exceptional circumstances such as bird strikes or storm.
