Your rights for flight refund are conditioned by criteria different for each disruption. Here are possible scenarios when you can claim a ticket refund:

You can ask for an alternative flight instead of reimbursement if you want to reach the final destination at any cost. If no offered option satisfies your needs, request a refund.
