Alin, birdstrikes are indeed an extraordinary circumstance, flight safety must take priority. If the birdstrike occurred on a previous sector and the aircraft had to be taken out of service to check for damage, the airline cannot be held responsible for the delay

Fahad, you first need to apply to the airline for compensation. If you are not happy with their response you can escalate your claim with this independent dispute resolution body

You cannot fly within 50m of a building, person etc that is not within your control. At the same time, you must not fly over a congested area, such as a town or city.

Billy, this is not one for us I am afraid, you will need to discuss this with the police.

You can indeed transfer your medical records to Spain, but you would then need to get your EASA PPL re-issued by the Spanish authorities. For full advice on this call our Licensing team on 0330 022 1972

Replying to @PaulLowry20
Yes that is correct, you can only apply for a licence in the country where your medical certificate is issued, ie. if you have a UK Class II then you must apply for a PPL in the UK.

Gareth, we usually suggest airlines be given around four weeks to reply to a claim. If you do not hear anything within the next two weeks you can refer your complain to this independent dispute resolution body

Nana, we expect airlines to seat children under the age of 12 in the same row as an accompanying adult. If this is not achieved during the booking process, cabin crew should make it happen when you board the aircraft.
