Jim Yong Kim decided to cancel his flight and let the airline re-route him on a direct flight to Moscow. A technical defect is not an extraordinary circumstance. However, the president of the World Bank is not entitled to financial compensation. As a passenger, you are allowed not to continue your journey after a delay of 5 hours. You are entitled to reimbursement of your ticket costs. When you decide to cancel your flight before the 5 hour delay is reached, you are not entitled to any compensation.
