Summary title: Petition No 0179/2019 by D.W. (German) and one co-signatory, on behalf of the Thueringer Bahn-Initiative, on passenger rights in the event of airline bankruptcy
Petition number: 0179/2019
Country: European Union
Name: E. P.
The petitioner is seeking a change in EU legislation aiming to ensure equal respect for the rights of passengers, regardless of whether they have booked a package holiday or reserved a flight directly with the airline. He also calls for passengers to be alerted of any impending risk of airline bankruptcy and informed of the date on which services would be ended in such an eventuality. In this way, airlines could be held accountable to passengers for any losses or inconvenience resulting from flight cancellations.
