Your rights as an air-passenger and how we can assist you.
If you are affected by a flight cancellation, you are basically entitled to a replacement transport. If you are not offered a suitable alternative after a flight cancellation, you can also reclaim the ticket price and make the booking yourself. In a situation where passengers have to wait at least 2 hours at the airport in Nürnberg due to a delay or cancellation, the airline has to make snacks and drinks available.
The most interesting part of it all is that you may be entitled to some compensations if your flight has been delayed for at least 3 hours or cancelled without at least 14 days prior notification before scheduled departure date. Amount payable is solely dependent on flight distance and not ticket price and airlines are held responsible for delays and cancellations in all but exceptional circumstances such as bird strike or storm.
