In 2018 Ryanair cancelled a number of flights as a result of strike action by its employees. The question arose as to whether it had to pay compensation to passengers under Regulation 261/2004 for the cancellations. The Civil Aviation Authority brought an action for an ‘enforcement order’ on the grounds that the airline was in contravention of the Regulation for not paying compensation. Ryanair argued that the strikes amounted to ‘extraordinary circumstances’ and therefore compensation was not payable. The High Court granted the order and now the Court of Appeal has agreed with the lower court.
