There are many Eu261 Compensation facts that we are not quite aware of. Given below are some which are important.

1. Right to reimbursement or re-routing in addition to compensation for your loss of time, if your delay goes beyond five hours, you are not only entitled to a full or partial refund of your original ticket but also a return flight to your point of departure provided the need for this arises.
2. Upgrading and downgrading If you are offered an alternative flight, but it costs more than the flight booked by you the airline cannot charge you anything extra. If the cost of the alternative flight is less then you are entitled to reimbursement of between 30-75% of the price of the ticket booked by you.
3. Cash compensation or flight vouchers--. According to EU flight cancellation policy compensation should be paid in cash, electronic transfer or checks, unless the passenger wants to accept travel vouchers offered instead of them.
4. Reimbursement for the disrupted connecting ticket. For this, the flights ought to have been booked together and as a part of the same journey. If booked separately for the onward flight it would not be covered.
5. Check compensation unique to the delayed flight not all flights have the same rules.

Apart from these compensation rights, we should also know the conditions and requirements related to them before submitting our delayed flight claim.

How flight delay is calculated -Flight delay is based on the time you arrive at your final destination.

What exactly is a flight’s “arrival time?” “Arrival time” is the moment at which the aircraft has reached its final destination and one of its doors is open.

What is the maximum time limit allowed for a flight to be delayed without having to pay any compensation? An airline is required to pay compensation only if the flight has been delayed beyond three hours not less than that.

No compensation needs to be paid if the delay is caused due to some ‘unforeseen circumstances’ which include situations like medical emergencies lightning strikes, adverse weather conditions, airport employee strikes, etc.
 
Expiry of right to EU 261 compensation depends on the time limit decided by the respective countries. The claim should be made in the country, which is the headquarter of the concerned airline.

So let us know our EU flight delay compensation, rights in cases of delayed flights and demand them because by not doing so we are tempting the airlines to become complacent towards passenger rights and comforts.
