SAN FRANCISCO (Legal Newsline) — Two California customers are suing an Icelandic airline, alleging breach of contract.
Brenda Leerar of Marin County and Samantha Robman of Los Angeles County filed a class action complaint, on behalf of themselves and all others similarly situated, Oct. 18 in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Wow Air EHF, alleging breach of duty of good faith and fair dealing.
According to the complaint, Leerar, Robman and those similarly situated individuals suffered substantial monetary damages as a result of having their flights from California to Reykjavik, Iceland, abruptly canceled or delayed for at least three hours or more for unknown reasons. The suit says the class members were not offered rerouting and compensation due under Regulation 261.
The plaintiffs allege Wow Air failed to provide compensation to passengers on delayed or canceled flights and caused plaintiffs to retain and pay legal fees.
Leerar and Robman seek trial by jury, judgment against the defendant, certifying the case as a class action, damages, interest, attorney fees, litigation expenses, costs of suit and all other relief the court deems just. They are represented by attorneys Gordon W. Renneisen and Paul J. Byrne of Cornerstone Law Group in San Francisco.
