The England and Wales Court of Appeal delivered two judgments on the interpretation of “extraordinary circumstances” and the time bar to compensation claims under Regulation (EC) Nr. 261/2004 on passenger rights in the event of flight long delay, cancellation and denied boarding. The judgments are in line with previous case law of the Court of Justice of the EU (CJEU) on these issues.
