Writing for the Mirror, Martyn James has issued advice on your rights to compensation should you be affected. Airlines If your flight has been delayed or cancelled as a result of airline staff going on strike, then you are entitled to compensation by law, Mr James explained in his latest column. But what you are entitled to depends on the delay and flight distance. The flight must be delayed by over three hours and is counted from the time the flight is meant to arrive, not take off. Arrival will also count as from when the plane doors are opened. The flight must take off from the UK or European Union or be from an airline based in these areas.

If your flight is cancelled up to 14 days before departure, then the airline must get you on another flight as soon as possible. Compensation rules still apply. Trains Mr James says that if you have paid for advanced tickets you should be able to get a refund, but each company has their own policy. You should check the terms and conditions for each website. You should also be able to claim a refund for season or flexi-season tickets.
