Anyone affected by a cancellation due to strike has mainly these rights:
- Right to re-routing or reimbursement of the ticket.
- Right to food and drinks.
- The right to hotel accommodation.
- You may also be entitled to reimbursement for expenses or compensation.
At a flight strike you always have the right to assistance, but the flat-rate allowance may vary from country to country. Keep in mind that if you choose a refund of the ticket, the airline no longer has any obligation to pay for accommodation and meals.
In extraordinary circumstances when a flight is cancelled, the airline may fully or partially exempt from its liability to pay compensation. An assessment of whether or not a situation is extraordinary is made from case to case.
