For carriers, it influences the transportation service terribly and directly damages their business reputation and economic benefits. There are a large number of elements that can cause flight delay, such as weather, mechanical bug, air control etc. Since no clear compensation standard exists now and there are too many requests from consumers, General Administration of Civil Aviation of China enacted Opinions on the Economic Compensation of Flight Delay on June 26th, 2004.
