Dear Airliners,

With new EU laws entering into the civil aviation industry, I need some advice on this issue, what would you guys from the civil aviation industry term the difference between a delayed flight and a cancelled flight,WHEN....the delay is more than 24 hrs?
imagine...u have a flt today, the 01st of july, and report to the airport, just to find out that your flt is delayed...not 2-4 hrs, but a compelete 26 hrs! Does it not mean that the flight has been cancelled for that day, ie. 01 july? if yes, does one get compensated for a delay or a cancelled flight, because compensation rules differ in both the cases.

your feedback would be valuable!

No, you can have 24+ hour delays. It just means that the flight from yesterday and the scheduled flight for the next day will operate. If a flight is cancelled it does not operate...period! All the passengers will then have to be rerouted onto other flights. If a flight is delayed it means that it will operate eventually. Could be an hour, could be ten, could be twenty but it will operate.

KLM/NWA did this to us on May 28 on flt 48 which took an 18 hour delay. Nope not a cancellation they would have had to pay us compensation but an 18 hour delay. (No not weather but technical)
