Huge loss for Norwegian. Only the long haul delays during fourth quarter of 2014 cost the company 265 MSEK

Norwegian flight delay

According to Financial Times Norwegian’s Q4 2014 ended with a loss of 1,2 Billion NOK. Only the long haul flight delays of the fourth quarter cost Norwegian 265 MNOK.

The costs of long haul delays that are mentioned in Financial Times are costs for extra lease of Aircrafts and food and board for delayed passengers. What I find interesting is that there is not one word about the passengers right to compensation for flightdelay according to EU Regulation 261/2004.

Interesting I thought so I scrutinized the whole Norwegian Q4 report for 2014. Nowhere could I find anything written about passengers right to compensation for flightdelay. Why I wonder? Could it be possible that all long haul delays plus 3 hours during Q4 of 2014 were caused by extraordinary circumstances? Or has Norwegian actively concealed that information?

 

Intressant tänkte jag och lusläste Norwegians rapport för Q4 2014. Ingenstans hittar man någonting om passagerarnas rätt till ersättning för flygförsening. Varför undrar jag? Är det möjligt att samtliga förseningar under Q4 2014 orsakats av extraordinära omständigheter?
