*Dawson v Thomson Airways Ltd

Carriage by air – Carriage of passengers. Following the claimant's successful claim for compensation for a delayed flight under Parliament and Council Regulation (EC) 261/2004 (establishing common rules on compensation and assistance to passengers in the event of denied boarding and of cancellation or long delay of flights), the airline appealed contending that the claim had been outside the two year limitation period allowed by the Montreal Convention of 1999. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, held that such a claim was outside the Convention and, accordingly, the two year limitation did not apply.
