This article analyses the alternative transportation requirement provided by Regulation (EC) No. 261/2004 in comparison with European sale of goods law, with a view to exploring the limits on re-routing to be provided by air transportation companies and the exercise of the passenger's right to be offered alternative transportation. The article concludes that this is a rarely regulated remedy, and there is room for improvement in a new Regulation to deal with re-routing when the original transportation contracted for is not provided.
