A heavy percentage of air travelers are unaware of the rights they have when to fly as airlines generally talk about the duties a traveler is expected to fulfill. We are here to guide you on how you can ask for a compensation in case your flight gets canceled or delayed.
The United States of America has overbooking done on flights. So, in case if you are denied boarding your flight due to overbooking, you could be compensated up to $1,350.
Flight Delay Compensation
Traveling by air cannot always be smooth or comfortable. Many technical snags do happen, which results in delayed flights. Due to this, you might even miss on a connecting flight too. So, if you come across such a situation, you may be able to claim up to $700.
Flight Cancellation Compensation
Did you know you may have the right to claim up to $700 for flight cancellation compensation under EU law? But there are certain parameters to fall under the category of a canceled flight. Supposedly, if the flight cancelation information was provided by the airline company 14 days or more in advance then the passenger is not entitled to any compensation. Also, depending on other conditions such as when the replacement flight arrives compared to the original schedule then the flight cancellation compensation may be reduced by 50%.
Ahead of Time
If your flight departs much sooner than the originally scheduled time, then this is also considered as a case of canceled flight only and you automatically become eligible for the canceled flight compensation.
Get in touch
Did your flight get canceled? Are you wondering whom to approach? Never mind, we have the answer sorted for you. You should claim compensation to the airline which operated the flight, not the company you booked it with. For example, you made a booking with one of the airline’s website but the flight was operated by some other airline, then your claim should be directed to the company who was supposed to operate on the airline’s behalf.
Describe in Detail
Whichever option the airline offers you to contact them, be it a letter, email or form, you must include a full description of what went wrong, how much money you want to claim for your disrupted flight experience and the appropriate quote from the EU Regulation 261 or EC261.
Escalate only if needed
Claiming a refund is not an easy process owing to many technicalities. And then in many episodes, airlines are rude or even manipulate passengers for their lack of knowledge about their flying rights. This is where you may escalate your claim to a National Enforcement Body (NEB) or an Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) scheme.
