British Airways delays - When and how to claim flight compensation
How to Claim flight cancellation compensation for British Airways (BA) delays - http://flightdelayscompensationclaim.co.uk/
Flight compensation in the UK can be made for BA flights in the last 6 years. When Brexit finally happens, the way flight compensation works will change. However, it’s likely that the UK will adopt the EU regulation 261/2004 and the compensation will remain.
It’s likely that flight compensation will continue after Brexit, but after the two year separation period, or when the politicians sort this out, the new flight compensation will be dealt with under UK legislation instead.
If your British Airways flight was either cancelled or delayed and this happened within the last 6 years, plus the delay or cancellation was the fault of BA, flight compensation may be claimed if you satisfy the current rules set out in EU regulation 261/2004.
Claiming compensation from British Airways for delayed flight or for a cancelled flight, you need to satisfy the following conditions and rules::
- The flight was in the last 6 years.
- The flight must have departed from any UK airport, or the flights must have arrived to any UK airport.
- The delay must be the fault of British Airways. This includes technical faults on the aircraft, crew sickness or lateness. The fault of the airline do not include bad weather (except in certain circumstances where the bad weather affected the inbound flight, which cause your flight to be cancelled), volcanic eruptions, strikes or political unrest.
- The amount of your flight compensation claim is also affected by the distance travelled with British Airways. Where it relates to a cancelled flight, the amount of delay you suffer with the replacement flight. Which can be anything up to €600 (or £530*) per person. So if you had two people in your party, that would mean you can claim up to €1,200 (£1,060*) in total.
Additional rules for cancellations:
- British Airways must have notified you of the cancellation within 14 days or less of the departure date of the flight.
- The amount you can claim then depends on the amount of notice you were given by BA for the cancellation prior to your departure date (i.e. it must be 14 days or less). This can be up to €600 per passenger.
Additional rules for delays
- The delay must be more than 3 hours. The delay relates to the arrival of the flight, which is deemed to be when the plane doors are first opened.

Although the British Airways refund policy will not affect your flight compensation rights, it may be worth reading this too.
