On Appeal at the Liverpool County Court, HHJ Wood QC determined that air traffic control issues could amount to extraordinary circumstances for the purposes of the Regulation.
  • Malakauskas -v- Ryanair DAC: (C03LV701): This case concerned the enforceability of an exclusive jurisdiction clause in the contract of carriage of an airline, restricting a claim for flight delay compensation under the Denied Boarding Regulation to issue in the Republic of Ireland. The Court upheld the validity of the jurisdiction clause.
