Maybe there is something I'm missing here but I would have thought that under these circumstances, airlines cannot use Covid-19 as an excuse for subsequent cancellation since the situation was already well known at the time of listing, and they are therefore liable?

I have a friend whose Easyjet flight Berlin to Stuttgart has been similarly retracted and seeks advice. It's no good just getting your money back if you've been seriously inconvenienced.

Any advice welcome!

I had my fare refund from easyJet returned to my credit card account on 17 June. I applied for it on 23 April. I have another outstanding refund claim for later flights that I submitted to easyJet on 24 May.

I believe that Covid19-related cancellations are classed as extraordinary circumstances. I booked all my fights in January/February when the extent of the Covid19 effects on air travel in Europe was largely unknown.
