For flight delay, flight cancellation or denied boarding
If you booked a specific flight, were present in time at the check-in-counter to be processed, but your airline canceled your flight and/or the flight delayed for more than three hours, you´re facing significant inconveniences. You not only are stuck at the airport, but you also may not arrive in time for an important business meeting or a family reunion or your vacation can not start in time to say the least.The EU Regulation on Air Passenger Rights (No. 261/2004) provides a lump sum compensation in these cases, which your airline has to pay you as liquidated damages. In our experience airlines still attend the aforementioned duty hesitantly. Without legal action, it is almost impossible to enforce such claims against airlines.

Use our free Warning-Generator to enforce your right to compensation in case of flight delay, flight cancellation or denied boarding
In case of a flight delay of more than three hours, a flight cancellation or denied boarding the EU Regulation on air passenger rights (No. 261/2004) provides a lump sum compensation as liquidated damages up to 600 € per passenger depending on the distance between your departure and destination airport. Unfortunately airlines tend to pay compensation very hesitantly. In fact, without taking legal action most airlines are not willing to pay compensation at all. Therefore in most cases filing a lawsuit is inevitable.
Before filing a lawsuit the affected passenger should set the airlinie a deadline to pay the compensation though. Otherwise the passenger would have to bear the costs of the lawsuit, if the airline chooses to admit the claim right away.
With the help of our free Warning-Generator, you can generate a warning and prompt the airline to pay. And with a little luck the airline will pay in reaction to this letter with no further legal proceedings required.
