Flight Delay Compensation

Flight delays can occur for a number of reasons, from a lack of available crew to mechanical problems. Compensation for delayed flights was established by EU Regulation 261/2004, guaranteeing up to €600 per passenger for flights which are delayed for three hours or more.

Obviously, an airline would prefer to avoid paying such a sum of money or to get bogged down by a lengthy, bureaucratic process. Airlines also wish to avoid a blow to their reputation. Therefore they have several ways to evade paying:

  • The airline can avoid compensation for delayed flight claims if they can prove that the flight delay was caused by exceptional circumstances beyond the airline’s control.
  • What is considered an exceptional circumstance is stipulated by each country’s legal system: For instance, in many cases (but not always), if a strike or extreme weather conditions occurred, it will not be covered.

Flight Cancellations Compensation

Flight cancellations can often be the result of aircraft or crew unavailability. In recent years, many airlines have been reducing costs by having less crew and maintenance staff on standby. Additionally, they are now operating with less turnaround time (the time an airplane spends at an airport between flights). That means that even the slightest problem with an aircraft or crew can cause a chain reaction across the entire airline’s network, potentially resulting in cancelled flights.

Compensation for a flight cancellation is guaranteed by EU Regulation 261/2004.

Overbooked Flight Compensation

Overbooking is a common practice in the airline industry today. Airlines will commonly oversell a flight (by selling more seats than available) to fill the seats of passengers who do not show up on the day of the flight.

This practice, however, creates a problem for a passenger on a flight where there are not enough ”no-shows” and, therefore, not enough available seats even though the passenger’s booking was reserved and confirmed correctly.

Refund for additional costs

In the case of significant delays airlines are required to provide food, drinks, and accommodation. This is often disregarded by the airline.

Occasionally airlines fail to provide passengers with adequate replacement transportation and refuse to pay for the alternatives.

In these cases passengers have to pay for themselves and can request a refund for these expenses.
