It is difficult to say weather or not you are entitled to compensation, if your flight gets cancelled or delayed due to work conflicts or labour strikes.

In the spring of 2018, European courts finished a big compensation case against TUI. The airline cancelled a bunch of flight from Germany due to labour conflicts and work strikes.

But we recommend that you claim for compensation in any case – remember it is completely free.
