Reports on Wednesday suggested the airlines were honouring their obligations to provide a refund or re-routing.  In addition, passengers whose flights are cancelled or delayed will be entitled to the care package under the Denied Boarding Regulations (EU Regulation 261/2004).

The right to fixed compensation will not arise as strike action outside of the airline's control will fall into the definition of "extraordinary circumstances."  This provides the airlines with a defence to any claims for compensation.

If Greece gets a reputation for causing disruption to the plans of British holidaymakers then people will choose to travel elsewhere.  And if people make that choice, it will only cause further damage to an economy which relies heavily on tourism.
