Airlines must compensate for delays during wildcat strikes: EU court

“BRUSSELS (Reuters) – Airlines have to pay compensation to passengers for delays caused by wildcat strikes that result from management decisions, the European Union’s top court said on Tuesday” writes Midwest Communications Inc for Several cases were brought to the EU’s Court of Justice after German airline TUIfly said a 2016 wildcat strike – one not formally initiated by a trade union – was an extraordinary event, and so it was not liable to compensate for delays. The court added that making a distinction between wildcat strikes and those organized by a trade union would make passenger compensation dependent on the rules in different EU countries, which could undermine air passenger rights.
