How To Claim Compensation For Your Delayed Or Cancelled British Airways Flight
At the weekend, a major IT failure caused havoc for British Airways customers all over the world. The IT failure meant that hundreds of flights were cancelled and thousands of flights were delayed.
Families were stranded, people missed weddings, funerals, important business meetings and to top it off, luggage was lost and little was done to accommodate those passengers who were stuck in the airport or in a foreign country unable to fly.
Under EU law, all passengers are entitled to compensation if their flight is delayed or cancelled.
The amount of compensation you can receive for delayed or cancelled flights depends on how long you had to wait and how far away your travel destination was.
As the cause of British Airways’ delay was under the airline’s control, they will now have to compensate any customer who was affected by the catastrophic error that the IT failure brought about.
British Airways’ legal team may try to claim that the delays were caused by an ‘extraordinary circumstance’ to avoid having to pay out compensation, but it is very likely that due to the apparent cause of the failure that this argument will not be accepted.
BA Management have also commented to say that they would not fight customers trying to claim compensation for the inconvenience this caused them.
