The status remains at
“Claim in settlement with airline”
for several days. Is there any progress?
Our system updates the status every 7 days. If you see the same status over and over again, then there is currently no progress.
Otherwise, you (the customer) will be informed first by email.
Why then are there these long waiting periods? The answer is quite simple. Some airlines simply do not respect the law. They delay their answer or fail to answer entirely.
That’s why we do not send only one settlement request, but often conduct a re-settlement, once or even twice. But you, the customer, will continue to see the same message, as we are still in settlement with the airline.
The other possible explanation is that a large number of claims is on hold, because of pending lawsuits, as we are currently witnessing in the UK.
