Am I entitled to compensation? Compensation for delayed flights is dependant on the reason for the delay. If the airline can prove the delay was caused by & extraordinary circumstances, then no compensation is payable. Extraordinary circumstances are situations beyond the control of the airline, for example, security risk, political instability or severe weather that makes flying dangerous. Strikes are also usually included in this category. Although you are not entitled to financial compensation for flight delays in these circumstances, you are entitled to the meals, refreshments, accommodation and hotel transfers depending on the length of your flight and delay (as explained above). It’s worth challenging your airline if you don't agree that there were extraordinary circumstances. For example, if you are told you can't fly due to weather conditions, but other flights are departing. Airlines may stretch the definition of extraordinary circumstances further than they should. If you still feel aggrieved by the airline, then contact the Civil Aviation Authority and seek their assistance. They may be able to intervene on your behalf. Please note the Civil Aviation Authority can only help you if the flight was cancelled or delayed within the UK. If your flight was cancelled or delayed outside the UK, you will need to complain to the airline regulator in the country the delay occurred in. If your flight has been delayed because of a strike, see our guide on what to expect from your airline in the event of a strike.
