What comes after
“Claim in settlement with airline” ?

Either the claim is finished (successfully or closed) or the claim proceeds to the next phase: “In court settlement”. That is, the claim will now be handled by one of refund.me’s associated lawyers/law firms. refund.me picks the most promising jurisdiction to further advance the claim by evaluating the flight data of the claim.

This last phase of a claim can last much longer than the first phase because judicial proceedings are involved and largely depend on the judicial system of a particular country. Therefore matters are mainly dictated by factors not directly controlled by refund.me. But rest assured: even if a long waiting time is involved, refund.me will fight for your rights and keep you informed. This phase typically ends when a verdict is reached. Depending on the verdict we can either start the payout to you, or we have to close the claim as a final loss.
