Flight Cancellation flight: compensation .

The European Regulation n° 261/2004 establishes common rules about air passenger rights in order to obtain compensation and ticket reimbursment in the event of denied boarding, flight cancellation and long delayed flights. The article 5 provides two kinds of rights: the right to get the ticket reimbursment  and to be compensed.

The right to monetary compensation amount from €250,00, to €600,00 depending on the distance between the airport of departure and arrival. The right to monetary compensation doesn't  cover every damage.

The article 12, being intitled “further compensation”, is the key to grant to air passengers a higher or further amount for damages not covered by the monetary compensation.

So, if the passenger prove a specific damage, could be compensated for the further or superior amount.  The fixed amount  provided monetary compensation, in this case, may be deducted by the superior one recognized by article 12.

According to the Italian Court decision (Giudice di Pace di Palermo, decision n°  4410/2007) through the article 12 can be recognized to a passenger the compensation to the existential damage.
