TORONTO, May 1, 2020 /CNW/ - Koskie Minsky has commenced a class proceeding against the following international airlines for refusing to refund tickets for flights cancelled as a result of COVID-19: Aeromexico, Air France, Alitalia, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Delta, Etihad Airways, El Al, Emirates, Lufthansa, Nippon Airways, Southwest Airlines, TAP Portugal, United Airlines, Qantas, Aer Lingus and Ryanair.
The class action is brought on behalf of all persons who entered into a contract with any one or more of the defendants, for air carrier services after March 1, 2020, which services were cancelled by any one or more of the Defendants, or which services were otherwise rendered inaccessible, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
It is alleged that passengers are entitled to refunds, in the original form of payment, under the terms of their contracts with the defendants and applicable regulations.
Kirk Baert, a partner at Koskie Minsky, stated "The improper denial of refunds for cancelled flights is particularly outrageous given the financial hardships people are facing as result of the COVID-19 pandemic."
