Jet2 Flight Delays / Cancellation / Denied Boarding Problems

Airlines can deny any compensation payment due to extraordinary bad weather. The situation might, however, be very different if the harsh weather conditions at any particular airport are constant or to be expected and other airlines are allowed to fly.

Constant “normal bad weather” at the airport is not considered to be an extraordinary situation that would justify the cancellation or delay of flights. This is due to the fact that the airline has to take normal, and therefore foreseeable, weather conditions into account when scheduling flights i.e. when deciding whether or not to allow aircraft to fly to and from certain airports.

You can find a comprehensive overview of court decisions regarding bad weather in the Claim Flights Law Case Database.
