There has been no class action procedure available in France, as in the United States or, in limited circumstances, in other European countries, such as Portugal or Spain, despite much debate over the past 35 years. Proposals for introducing class actions first appeared in 1984-1985 as a draft bill presented to Parliament, but were then abandoned. In 1990, a committee reviewing consumer protection recommended a class action mechanism in France; however this did not go further.

Análisis de jurisprudencia

10 December 2014
The European Court of Justice ruled that mobile stairs colliding with an aircraft does not constitute “extraordinary circumstances” within the meaning of Article 5 (3) the Regulation 261/2004 on passenger rights.
9 September 2014
The European Court of Justice (ECJ) ruled that Articles 2, 5 and 7 of Regulation (EC) No 261/2004 must be interpreted as meaning that the concept of ‘arrival time’ refers to the time at which at least one of the doors of the aircraft is opened.
31 July 2014
The Court of Appeal upheld the decision of the Cambridge County Court, finding that the limitation period for bringing a claim under Regulation EC 261/2004 (Reg 261) is not within the scope of the Montreal Convention 1999 (the Convention) and therefore Convention time bars do not apply. Instead, the six year limitation period for breach of statutory duty under the Limitation Act 1980 applies.
