Monarch flight delay passengers could benefit from recent ruling on lightning strikes. 

Thousands of air passengers could benefit from a recent court decision which ruled that lightning strikes are not one of the ‘extraordinary circumstances’ that excuse airlines from paying flight delay compensation.  

Monarch Flight delay

Judge Melissa Clarke ruled in favor of two passengers in an appeal case against Monarch Airlines at Reading County Court.

Although the majority of planes that are struck by lightning arrive safely and on time, delays can occur.    Two passengers recently received £450.00 each for delays caused by lightning strikes.
