Kuwaiti wins KD 650 compensation for delay in flight causing emotional damage

KUWAIT CITY, Dec 16: Commercial circuit at the Court of First Instance obliged an airline company to pay KD 650 to a citizen in compensation for damage caused by delay of his flight, which was scheduled to depart to Cairo, Egypt.

Representing the citizen, Attorney Abdul-Mohsin Al-Qattan argued that his client had booked an afternoon flight (1:40 pm) which ended up departing at 8 pm without the carrier taking any necessary measure toward its passengers, an act that disrupted his client’s plans and caused him emotional damage.

He added that his client had to wait for more than six hours without knowing the departure schedule to his destination, while personnel of the carrier failed to provide information or even appease the passengers during the period
