Sometimes Qantas Airlines cancels flights, and this can be very frustrating to deal with as a passenger. However, in most cases, passengers will be booked for another flight as soon as possible. Remember according to Qantas Airlines Cancellation Policy that you can request a refund of the original ticket if the alternate flight does not work for you.
If your flight has been canceled, your right to compensation depends mainly on the cause of the cancellation and the time you were notified of the cancellation. You may be entitled to compensation if Qantas Airlines informs you directly that your flight is canceled less than 7 days before the scheduled departure and if the cancellation causes you to arrive at your final destination more than 2 hours later than planned. You may also be entitled to compensation if the airline informed you of the canceled flight less than 14 days before your scheduled departure and arrived at your final destination at least 4 hours later than expected.
