My flight was canceled less than 24 hours prior. I was unable to reschedule with another airline because of the short notice and all offered alternatives were also canceled. The flight was scheduled for late July 11, 2022. I did not get to this trip because of the strike. My returning flights were also interrupted and unused as I didn't get to Olbia at all.

SAS pilot strike caused flight to be cancelled. We were assigned new flight but that was cancelled too, so we requested refund. Are we still eligible for further compensation based on EU261?

I received a text message just 12 hours before my departure from chicago airport that my flight has been canceled and then received another text saying that it has been rebooked. Now instead of reaching at about 7:00pm on Sunday I will be reaching Paris at 8:00am on Monday. The initial flight was via Copenhagen and both the legs has been canceled.
