Subject: First steps to making a flight compensation claim
- Technically you can apply for compensation for any past delays, stretching back as far as February 2005 when the rules came into force.
- Complain to your airline in the first instance. If your case is rejected, complain to the relevant regulator or to the European Consumer Centre where relevant. Contact us on 0800 011 2757 or 0151 431 0548 for further information.
It must be the airline’s fault to claim – You are only entitled to the compensation if the delay was something within the airline’s control. Staffing problems and underbooking all count.
