Are you entitled to flight delay or cancellation compensation
No win, no fee flight delay & flight cancellation compensation
If travelling for business it could mean missing out on that important meeting you’ve spent months setting up.
All airlines are legally subject to a compulsory compensation scheme (within EU Regulation 261/2004) for passengers who are denied boarding (including being denied the class of seat booked), or who had their flight cancelled or delayed.
This regulation applies to all flights between EU states, out of an EU state, into an EU state, or by an EU based airline (they also apply to some other non EU states).
Don’t miss out. Our team of experts is here to help you make sure you receive the flight delay or cancellation compensation you’re entitled to.
- The amount of compensation payable is a fixed tariff depending on the type, or length of your flight and is payable per passenger
- According to The Limitation Act that applies in UK law, claims are normally limited to a 6 year time limit from the date of the event

Why Optimal Solicitors
Food and drink, access to the phone and emails, even potentially accommodation and any related journeys – these are all services that the airline should give you, usually after a two-hour delay. This is a legal obligation in line with the EU regulation 261/2004.
When comfort services will become your entitlement is dependent on a few factors: the length of the delay, the distance of your flight, and the countries you’re flying from and to. The table below illustrates this:
|Flight distance||Length of delay|
|Less than 1,500km||2 hours|
|More than 1,500km (and within the EU)||3 hours|
|1,500-3,500km (and between EU and non-EU countries)||3 hours|
|More than 3,500km (and between EU and non-EU countries)||4 hours|
If you weren’t provided these services, but still had to pay for them, then you might be able to claim reimbursements from the airline. Hold on to any receipts connected to your interrupted flight. You should bear in mind that these need to be reasonable – if you’ve chosen the most expensive hotel, for example, it’s doubtful the airline will reimburse you.
Your entitlement begins when the flight arrives at its destination three hours or more later than anticipated. The longer the flight delay, and the further the distance, then the more you can expect to receive. You should also be aware that the reason for the flight interruption needs to be considered the airline’s fault for your claim to be valid.
If your flight was delayed by over five hours, then who’s at fault and the distance no longer matters. You also have the option to not board the flight – and you can claim either way. If your flight is cancelled or you were denied boarding due to an overbooked flight, you have the right to claim for this as well.
