Court warns agents may be sued over flight cancellations

The warning comes after the European Court of Justice ruled that an airline that is unable to prove that a passenger was informed of the cancellation of their flight more than two weeks before departure must compensate them under EU 261 flight compensation rules.

It said this applied not only when the passenger had booked direct with the airline but also when they had booked via a travel agent or tour operator. FULL STORY
