LOT: Regulation (EC) No 2111/2005 Change of Operating Carrier

Having read the Regulation tonight, I cannot see where the passenger has the right to ask for re-routing if the operating carrier has changed from what the pax has been told at the time of booking, unless the new carrier is on a ban list.

Can anyone point me in the direction to the specific right to change the operating carrier EXCEPT for a basis under national law for contract performance?

All I can see that you need to be informed before check-in on the change of operating carrier.

The regulation doesn't require the marketing carrier to offer an alternative. However the carriers usually offer a rebooking if you don't like the new operating carrier.

I am seeing a sub on LCA for some Greek outfit on a clapped out 734. After having such a fight to get back my hotel for a canx TLL flight I don't have much faith they will be so willing to do a Star invol reroute.

Do you think LOT would rebook to LH/OS/LX(WK)? Are LH easily rebooking pax who are subbed for XG?

I once got a claptrap former malay B733 on Jettime instead of KF/Blue1 in 2012. That was an adventure.

Food onboard LOT Y?

Oh, you mean if Comrade Chairman OH would send me back some of Basia’s premium leftover offerings to me peering through the curtain from proletariat class?

Basia is saying get stuffed. And not the stuffing that I am used to with Basia when she utters those words to me.

I don't see how to proceed unless to sue. I bought them through the UK site, so it should be okay to show jurisdiction despite it being KRK-WAW-LCA.

A change of the operating carrier constitutes a cancellation. Thus, this triggers article 8 -> choice between full refund, free reroute at the earliest opportunity, or free reroute at another later date;

I knew it would happen, hence my thread and it has. Now a GetJet A319. Refusing to rebook me.

"It's still LOT...its only got the pilots from other company" he says. I laughed out loud.

Can you prove that LOT has refused the rebooking ->
Then make the rebooking yourself and sue LOT for these costs!

That’s for the birds now.

They have rebooked me to Helga as the flight is very much oversold. My ticket is even endorsed that way.

I see Helga is oversold in C. Someone is getting downgraded tomorrow...
