Monarch rejected our compensation claim for delayed flight

Category : Business

The airline is claiming the aircraft’s technical problems amount to ‘extraordinary circumstances’

My friend and I flew from London to Milan with Monarch Airlines on 21 June last year. There was a technical problem with the aircraft, which meant we eventually left Gatwick more than three hours late.

I wrote to Monarch after I returned from Italy to ask about compensation, but they said they wouldn’t pay any in this case. Then I saw a recent article about the European ruling on flight delays and, on the back of this, formally applied for compensation again a couple of weeks ago. I don’t believe the response I received from Monarch is fair. I don’t think technical difficulties represent an “extraordinary circumstance” as they claim. MD, London

You are not alone in your frustrations: thousands of passengers are currently trying to claim compensation for delayed flights since the law changed – but the response from airlines is mixed. Some people are being awarded the money they are apparently entitled to, some are being turned down.

To clarify, since October 2012 air passengers who have suffered delays of three hours or more at an airport within the EU have been able to claim back as much as £480 plus expenses per person. The claims can be retrospective for up to six years. Airlines can only get out of paying if a delay is caused by “extraordinary circumstances” – essentially, any situation outside their control. However, what appears to be happening is that airlines are routinely citing such circumstances even when there weren’t any.

The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), which now looks after passenger complaints, says it is seeing many of these cases. It claims that complexities around what exactly constitutes “extraordinary circumstances” can bring a mechanical fault into that category – but not always.

However, last month a raft of changes was unveiled by the European commission aimed at removing “grey areas” in airline passenger rights while flying within the EU. One of the changes seeks to clarify “extraordinary circumstances” for compensation. The updated rules say that only natural disasters and air traffic control strikes can be defined as extraordinary; technical problems identified during routine aircraft maintenance can not.

Although these new rules, if approved by member states, will not become law until 2015, we think you could use the guidance to help argue your case. You should first approach the CAA to look at your complaint – but be warned, because the authority is deluged it is taking weeks, sometimes months, to resolve complaints.

We also know of a number of people who are trying their hand in the small claims court with these claims. We would recommend this route once you have contacted the CAA. A judge in Staffordshire recently awarded a couple £680 after their Thomas Cook flight was delayed in 2009. The couple’s claim had been turned down by the airline.
