Nope, LOT canceled without willing to rebook me. Rebooked myself on different airline and now claiming the extra costs with LOT.

Are you doing this through the NEB? Courts? Or not got that far yet?

Do they have enforcement powers in Danish law?

Did you travel the same dates as the original booking?

The Danish NEB came out with its ruling today. In short: LOT cancelled my flight and did not offer me rerouting. I booked myself an alternative flight, a few months later. The authority ruled that LOT does NOT have to pay the extra costs for that flight, as I left too much time between the original flight date (Singapore was closed due to covid) and the new trip.

"The air carrier is obligated to offer passengers the choice between reimbursement or re-routing, in which the passenger was not offered in this case." and "It is the evaluation of the Authority that the intent of Article 8(1)(c) in the Regulation is to assure an obligation for the air carrier to offer the passenger a replacement flight for their original scheduled flight. It is not the intent to give the passengers the opportunity to leave their tickets open to purchase a ticket, so that they can travel a year after the cancellation of a scheduled flight as the Authority sees this as a new journey. As such, it is the evaluation of the Authority that the passengers own re-routing is not considered comparable transport conditions in accordance with Article 8(1)(c)."

No surprise. The Danish NEB has been criticised for being favorable to the airlines in its administration of the rules. This decision seems to be in line with this (although I understand the point made in the decision which is not unreasonable).

What's the statute of limitations in DK? You could sue if its still got enough time, or probably, the clock was stopped as soon as you started the process with NEB and started again when the decision was made. It would cost LOT a pretty penny to put up a lawyer in DK.

Is there any history of them ruling in favour of pax for rebooking in a closer time? Many airlines believe Article 8 (1)(c) is just days never mind weeks, month or a year.
