Passengers affected by a pilot strike are entitled to receive a Thomas Cook Airlines compensation for the damages suffered.
Although many airlines state that a pilots' strike is a "force majeure or extraordinary circumstance", the reality is that this kind of situation is not covered as such by European regulations on air passengers' rights.

Pilot strikes do not fall into this category.
