Plane Delay Compensation.

It has been confirmed today that airlines have been trying to use “bird strikes” as an excuse to get out of paying plane delay compensation to passengers who have been affected by a bird strike.

A hearing took place in the Manchester County Court and judge has ruled that airlines are no longer allowed to use “bird strikes” as an exceptional circumstances.

Exceptional circumstances are circumstances which fall out of the airlines control, for example extreme weather such as severe snow, and storms.

If you have had a plane delay due to a bird strike within the last 6 years and your aircraft has been delayed for 3 hours or more, you may be entitled to plane delay compensation.
