What are my rights as a passenger on cancelled flights?
Flight cancellations can often be the result of unavailability of the aircraft or crew.
In recent years, many airlines have reduced costs by having fewer crew and maintenance personnel on standby. In addition, they are now operating with less waiting time (the time an aircraft spends at an airport). That means that even the slightest problem with an aircraft or crew can cause a chain reaction across the entire airline network, which can result in flight cancellations.
