Think twice before accepting another flight voucher
If you’ve ever experienced a flight disruption and claimed your compensation with an airline, you were most probably confronted with a term extraordinary circumstances at least once. It can be also referred to as “force majeure”, or “act of God”, but whatever we call it, it’s the most common tricky phrase used by airlines to refuse your claims even if you are legally entitled to compensation.
Europe is packed with amazing locations to visit, but here are a few of our favourites. This isn’t meant to be an exhaustive guide to each city, but it should give you a quick idea of what’s available, and why each of these great cities is worth a visit if you get the chance (and if you don’t have the chance, you should make it!).
There are so many travel websites and mobile apps that you can often feel overwhelmed and rather use old school methods.
I personally tried and tested more than hundred of them and created a collection of the best travel websites and mobile apps. I promise that this post will make your nomadic life much easier, enjoyable, and will save you money at every stage of your journey.
We live in a fast-paced environment where new products emerge on a daily basis. Therefore, this post is meant to be continuously updated – don’t forget to bookmark it so you can get back later on.
Aircraft Service International Group (ASIG), the provider of Air New Zealand’s ground handling services at London Heathrow, has announced a strike action on Friday, 12th September 2014.
According to Air New Zealand’s announcement, flights are expected to operate as scheduled. However, check-in processing may be a little slower than normal for departures and there may be some delays in baggage processing for arriving flights.
I must say that it has been very busy week in aviation and it still hasn’t ended. Besides Icelandic volcano eruption, there was also an eruption in Papua New Guinea followed by a strike of Lufthansa’s subsidiary Germanwings – C’mon, I can’t even write this posts so quickly to cover everything! The latest news for upcoming weekend – ATC strike in Italy on Saturday, 6th September.
The strike could affect every single airport in Italy but according to Italian law, intercontinental and inbound flights will not be affected. It will take place between 12:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. (Central European Summer Time) so many flight delays and cancellations are expected during a whole afternoon.
The pilots union of Lufthansa has announced a strike at Frankfurt Airport for today from 5 p.m. till 11 p.m. local time. Short and medium haul flights departing and arriving at Frankfurt/Main will be affected.
A list of all cancelled flights can be found here.
Remember Eyjafjallajokull, the Icelandic volcano whose eruption in 2010 forced airlines to cancel more than 100,000 flights (accounting for 48% of total air traffic) which affected more than 10 million passengers and caused about $1.7 billion in lost revenue? Right now, as history repeats itself, our latest Iceland’s volcano covering everyday news of recent weeks is Bardarbunga. I made a list of the most common questions & answers you should be aware of if you plan to fly over Europe in a near future.
“On behalf of American Airlines, British Airways, Finnair and Cathay Pacific, I would like to welcome you on board of the flight to London.” How many times have you heard such welcome message from a flight attendant and wondering why so many airlines are involved when there is just one aircraft preparing to take off? In fact, it’s nothing extraordinary within the aviation industry and it’s called a codeshare agreement or simply just codeshare. Let me tell you what benefits it brings you and what you should be aware of.
In one of my previous post you can find out that you can pursue your claims through the courts for all flights that you made up to 2 years back. Now I have a great news for thousands of UK air travelers – you can claim your rights also for flights from up to 6 years ago thanks to James Dawson.
Recently I wrote many posts about the legislation and what to do when things go wrong and your flight is delayed, cancelled, you get bumped from the flight or your baggage gets lost. Well, I think it’s important to be prepared for every possible flight disruption during your trips but on the other hand, I am perfectly aware that traveling should be primarily about a fun.
