Under the Montreal Convention1 the carrier2 is liable for damage occasioned by delay3 in the carriage by air4 of passengers, baggage5 or cargo6. The carrier is not, however, liable for damage occasioned by delay if he proves that he and his servants or agents took all measures that could reasonably be required to avoid the damage or that it was impossible for him or them to take such measures7.
Outside the remit of the Montreal Convention provision is made at EU level establishing minimum rights for passengers when their flight is cancelled
