Air Greenland will seek to contact all affected passengers by SMS (requires that the agent has inserted the APN phone element) or by phone.

The downgraded passengers will keep their 30 kg baggage allowance.
Delays causing cancellations
For delays causing cancellation within and from Greenland, from Denmark or Iceland, caused by weather or technical issues, Air Greenland will ensure overnight accommodation, breakfast, vouchers for lunch/dinner and taxi fare, if necessary.
For delays causing cancellation from a service contract area to another service contract area or to outside the service contract area, Air Greenland provides for vouchers for lunch and dinner and does not ensure overnight accommodation, breakfast and taxi fare.
Refund is permitted if flight is cancelled or alternative rebooking causes loss of purpose of the trip and not accepted by the passenger.
The passenger or the agent must still cancel the reservation as soon as possible or at least before new departure to ensure refund of the ticket due to irregularity.
It is possible for the passenger to ask the departure station to cancel the segments before new departure time. If flights are not cancelled in due time, refund is not possible, as the ticket will be registered as no-show.

Travelling on separate tickets
If a passenger is travelling on separate tickets, but all on GL631-documents, Air Greenland recommends that this is stated in the PNR or at least mentioned at check-in in order to rebook connecting flights on GL631-documents in case of delays.
If a passenger is travelling on separate tickets from origin to destination, with different airline documents and misses the connecting flight with another airline due to schedule changes, delays or cancellation, Air Greenland can not be accounted for any misconnection that may occur or for onward transportation.
