Flight delay compensation is not being claimed.
Airlines could be sitting on £112m of flight delay compensation this summer, as 70 per cent of customers won’t claim back for delays.
Seven in 10 UK travelers are unlikely to claim flight delay compensation they are entitled to from their airline this summer.
Many passengers who have suffered delays believe they will only receive £176, which seems like it may not be worth reclaiming and the potential hassle, however the maximum is £460 they could actually be owed in flight delay compensation.

Almost half a million flyers are expected to be delayed for more than three hours during the summer months alone, while many travellers’ schedules have already been disrupted by cancellations due to strikes in France. Despite the option to claim for delays of over three hours or more under European Union regulation being in place for a decade, a third of people were unaware they could.
Last year, more than seven in ten (71 per cent) of those who made claims directly to their airline were successful, with nearly two-thirds (64 per cent) of these customers receiving payment from the airline.
The CAA received almost nine thousand complaints in the last 12 months, of which 87 per cent were ultimately successful. EasyJet also announced at the end of May that passengers who go through airport security with less than 30 minutes before takeoff could be prevented from boarding their flights. This could cost passengers up to £80 in “rescue fees” to switch to a different flight, the Independent reported.
