Delayed and Cancelled Flights at Christmas

airline delays

Every year 3.5 million passengers take flights over the festive season for any number of reasons from travelling home for a week with family to a week in the sun.  Increased passenger numbers can mean increased risk of your flight being delayed or cancelled.  Recent surveys show that over a third of flights will be delayed on 22 December and nearly 5% of flights will be cancelled on 19 December.

Did you know that if you are delayed for 3 hours or more- or have been on trips up to 6 years ago – that you could be entitled to up to €600 per passenger compensation?  You could put that towards next year’s holiday or boost your finances after Christmas.

We will consider the factors that determine whether you will be entitled to compensation, but the spectrum is broad and includes, but is not limited to;

  • Staffing problems on flights
  • Technical faults
  • Denied boarding

Regardless of whether your flight was part of your big holiday for the year or a last minute bargain, the compensation will be the same because this is based on the length of the delay and the distance you travelled not how much you paid for the holiday itself.

With Michael Lewin Solicitors your flight delay or cancellation claim will be hassle free- an added bonus after the unwanted stress of spending the first or last hours of your trip enjoying nothing but the departure lounge.
