ECJ Broadens Passenger Compensation for Canceled Flights

While we're not yet finished dissecting the Advocate General's ETS opinion, we'd be remiss if we failed to call attention to another significant opinion handed down by the ECJ last Thursday. The ECJ held that flights that fail to reach their final destination because of technical difficulties are to be considered cancelled flights under EU law, and passengers on cancelled flights are entitled to recover non-material damages caused by the cancellation such as meal costs and taxi fares. Blog readers interested in the full opinion can find it here.
