Plane Delays Compensation and Cathay Pacific
Plane delays can lead to compensation against Cathay Pacific if, for instance, your plane from Heathrow was flying to a non EU Airport and was delayed by 3 hours or more. The other criteria for passengers to make a claim are as follows:
- Cathay Pacific plane delay was within the last 6 years
- Cathay Pacific plane delay was not due to an “exceptional circumstance.”
Even though the Airline Company is not EU based, providing that the Airline departs from a UK based airport, the EU plane delay Regulations apply and thus if there is a delay of 3 hours or more, compensation can be obtained. No delayed plane compensation against Cathay Pacific can be obtained if the plane was returning back to the UK from a non-EU Country.

Plane Delay Compensation Cathay Pacific Claim Form
Plane delays compensation and “exceptional circumstances.”
It was thought by Airlines that if the plane delays were due to mechanical or electrical failures which could not routinely be detected by the usual service and maintenance of the aircraft.
This argument was put to the test in court but the airlines failed. Even if it was a mechanical fault with the plane, it did not stop the chance to make a plane delay compensation claim against Cathay Pacific or other Airline Companies that breach the EU Regulations.
The exceptional circumstances can be summarised as follows:
- Volcanic Ash Cloud,
- Traffic Control Strikes,
- Political Unrest,
As such examples are completely outside Cathay Pacific control, compensation for plane delays can be obtained
