About Lufthansa and Reasons for flight Delay or Cancellation
Lufthansa is the largest German airline and, when combined with its subsidiaries, it is the largest airline in Europe, in terms of fleet size, and the second largest passenger airline with over 100 million passengers being transported annually. It operates services to 18 domestic destinations and 197 international destinations in 78 countries across Africa, the Americas, Asia, and Europe, using a fleet of more than 270 aircraft. The airline is accorded a certain degree of liability which is a reputation that has being increasingly difficult to live up to. It tries as much as possible to be in constant competition with low cost airlines which often results in tight flight scheduling and as such, flight delays and cancellation is constantly experienced.
Your Rights as an
The EU passenger rights regulation no. 261/2004, which was introduced in 2004, has helped to cut down on flight delays and cancellations a great deal. Passengers are entitled to compensation if a flight is delayed for at least 3 hours or canceled without prior notification of at least 14 days before scheduled flight departure date. It is usual practice for the airline to give you sufficient notice of an imminent flight cancellation. In a situation where you are given at least 14 days notice before scheduled departure date, the the airline is required to make provision for a replacement flight and you have the right to say if you want to accept the offer or not. However, Airlines are not held responsible for monetary compensation if delay or cancellation is as a result of Bird strikes, storms and other related bad weather conditions. Amount payable is usually dependent on the flight distance and not the ticket price and can sometimes be higher than the original ticket price.
