Hurricane Irma Causes Flight Cancellations

After battering the islands of Barbuda and Antigua, Hurricane Irma is heading northwards towards Florida with its winds in excess of 200mph. The hurricane has also brought torrential rainfall and a storm surge of up to 20ft, threatening low-lying areas with flooding.

British Airways has warned that many flights to and from the Virgin Islands and the Florida peninsula will be cancelled, causing massive disruption to thousands of holidaymakers who will effectively be stranded. The company cancelled flights to hurricane-battered Antigua, sending an empty aircraft to bring back British holidaymakers on the island.

Boris Johnson said: “There are tens of thousands of British people there and clearly we are updating our travel advice the whole time people have been going there.

“This is going to be a very big storm and we have [a ship] full of relief and supplies on stand-bye.”

Big thanks for the £304.70 transferred to my bank account today. My claim related to a three-leg flight from Norwich UK to Phoenix USA via Schiphol. The CAA suggested I had a good case but could do nothing because the delay occurred within Dutch jurisdiction. I twice did battle with KLM/Delta myself but they would not budge. Another claims firm tried but threw in the towel. So congratulations to Claim4Flights for taking it on and winning – and for getting the money transferred into my bank account within two days of notification. Very impressed!
