How do I get compensation for a British Airways flight?

You had booked a flight with British Airways, but it was cancelled, delayed or overbooked?

Sky Indemnity can assist you in your compensation procedures. Our legal team will answer your questions, assert your rights and take the necessary steps to obtain compensation.

The company

British Airways

British Airways merged with Iberia in 2011 to create the International Airlines Group (IAG). In 2019, the group carried no fewer than 118 million passengers.

British Airways operates mainly from its hub at London Heathrow Airport. Its fleet consists of 280 aircraft, serving more than 200 destinations worldwide.

    Compensation made available

    If the conditions laid down are met, a flight disruption entitles the injured passenger to compensation from the airline, whether in the form of cancellation, delay or overbooking.

    However, the airline frequently obstructs the recovery of compensation requested by the passenger.

    The company often complicates this recovery by implementing processes that take longer than necessary, or by flatly refusing the application altogether.

    The purpose of this behaviour is to discourage passengers from completing their journey and to force them to defend their rights before a court, which generally involves costs that exceed the recoverable compensation.

    You can rely on our experts to help you solve these problems.

    Our team will be able to use its knowledge of the European regulation EC 261/2004 to defend your rights, and will be able to respond effectively to the actions of airlines that are reluctant to respect your rights.

    How to be compensated?

    Initially, the application of the European Regulation is determined by three initial conditions:

    • Your flight departs from or is destined for an airport in the European Union. If it is to a European airport, the airline operating the flight must also be European in order for Regulation EC 261/2004 to apply;
    • You are in possession of your boarding pass or booking confirmation;
    • You have respected the check-in deadline indicated by the airline British Airways.

    It is important to note that since British Airways is a UK-based airline, only flights prior to 31 January 2020 are considered to have been operated by a European airline.

    To find out the eligibility of your flight in two clicks, you can check it with our compensation calculator.

    Simply enter the information for the flight concerned and the calculator will show you its eligibility and how much the allowance may amount.

    Recovery of flight allowance British Airways

    British Airways:
    flight cancelled

    Your British Airways flight was cancelled?

    First of all, you can ask the airline company to reimburse you for the plane ticket.

    If a flight cancellation occurs in the middle of a journey with stopovers, the European regulation also allows aggrieved passengers to request a return flight to their home airport with British Airways.

    Secondly, the right to compensation depends on the time before departure at which the airline notified you of the flight cancellation and the conditions of the alternative flight it normally offered you.

    So you will not be able to claim compensation if British Airways has warned you:

    • More than two weeks before the departure date;
    • Between 7 days and 2 weeks before the departure date, if an alternative flight leaving no earlier than 2 hours before the scheduled departure and arriving less than 4 hours after the scheduled arrival has been offered to you ;
    • Less than 7 days before the departure date, if an alternative flight leaving no earlier than 1 hour before the scheduled departure and arriving less than 2 hours after the scheduled arrival has been offered to you.

    The European regulation will not allow you to claim compensation if British Airways has complied with the notice periods described. You will then be able to choose between :

    • Take the flight you were offered;
    • Ask for a refund and book another flight;
    • Ask for a refund and postpone your trip.

    In short, flight cancellation gives rise to a right to compensation according to the period of notice respected by the airline and the conditions of the replacement flight.

    Added to this is the responsibility of the airline. Indeed, the disruption must fall within the scope of British Airways' activity and control for the company to be held responsible, and be obliged to compensate passengers who have been harmed.

    If you don't know what may have caused the disruption to your flight, you can use our calculatorwhich will inform you of the eligibility of your flight in two clicks.

    The British Airways flight delay

    A flight delay may also entitle you to rights under certain conditions.

    Firstly, for British Airways to be obliged to assist its passengers in the event of a delay, the delay must be at least :

    • 2 hours or more for flights of less than 1500 kms;
    • 3 hours or more for flights of more than 1500 kms within the European Union and from 1500 to 3500 kms for other flights;
    • 4 hours or more for all flights over 3500 kms.

    The airline will then have to provide free refreshments and meals to its passengers, as well as the possibility of making two calls and hotel accommodation if the delay extends into the next day.

    Also, a flight delay may also entitle you to a refund of your airfare, but this must be at least 5 hours.

    Finally, for a flight delay to be eligible for compensation, it must be at least 3 to 4 hours, depending on the distance of your flight.

    As with flight cancellation, the cause of the delay must also be the responsibility of British Airways in order for it to make the flight eligible.

    The overbooked British Airways flight

    Aircraft load factor has become a crucial parameter for an airline's profitability, and overbooking regularly forces many passengers to be denied boarding.

    When the number of reservations exceeds the capacity of the aircraft, British Airways will attempt to call for volunteer passengers who are willing to surrender their seats on board.

    If the number of volunteers was not sufficient and British Airways refused your boarding accordingly, the airline will first of all have to refund your flight ticket.

    You may also ask him/her to offer you a replacement flight as soon as possible or at a later date (depending on seat availability).

    Compensation is provided for in European Regulation EC 261/2004 as immediate, but this obligation is rarely respected by airlines.

    How much can you claim?

    The amount of compensation is decided taking into account the distance of the flight reservation.

     

    • 250€ for a cancellation, denied boarding or a delay of more than three hours on flights less than 1500 kms away;
    • 300€ for flights with a delay of between three and four hours, with a distance of more than 3500 kms;
    • 400€ for a cancellation, denied boarding or a delay of more than three hours, between 1500 kms and 3500 kms (or more than 1500 kms within the European Union) ;
    • 600€ for a cancellation, a denied boarding or a delay of more than four hours, whose route exceeds 3500 kms.

      Why entrust us with your claim?

      Reimbursement is so self-evident that many passengers miss out on their right to compensation. And the lack of information is compounded by procedures that the airlines make difficult to carry out.

      For these reasons, we have created the Sky Indemnity service, which allows you to obtain your compensation without having to take the necessary steps to make a claim.

      Our team will listen to your questions, take care of your claim and provide you with legal support, so that you can assert your rights in the best possible way and obtain your compensation as quickly as possible.

      Check the eligibility of your flight, you can recover up to 600€!
