British Airways, founded in 1974, is a British airline company. The airline company flies to over 180 destinations worldwide. British Airways has a glorious history, they are remembered as the only two airline companies that had the Concord type flight, which could fly from London to New York in less than 4 hours.
British Airways was once Great Britain's most used airline company, however they have now been overtaken by Easyjet. The same trend is also overviewed in Denmark, British Airways annually carries over 500,000 passengers from Copenhagen Airport, while Easyjet carries the triple of it.
If you have been denied to be boarded to your British Airways flight or you have experienced a delay or cancellation, you may be entitled to compensation with value of up to 600 € per person.
This right for compensation is ensured under EU Regulation 261/2004, which gives you the opportunity to get the compensation with value of up to 600 € per person. The condition for eligibility to this compensation states that your flight must be delayed for at least 3 hours or cancelled. If you are denied to be boarded to a British Airways flight, you may also be entitled to compensation.
This right for compensation is ensured under EU Regulation 261/2004. The regulation applies to trips made within EU (including Switzerland, Norway, Iceland, etc.) and with airline companies that belong to these countries. Since Great Britain is a part of this association, you may be entitled to the compensation for your flight made with British Airways.
If British Airways is responsible for your flight delay or cancellation, the airline company will have to pay you a compensation with value of up to 600 € per person.
Like other European airline companies, British Airways is subject to EU Regulation 261/2004 about the air passenger rights. The only problem is that British Airways may deny that they are responsible for the flight disruption and thus refuse to pay compensation. If this happens, Flycancel will escalate the case to the highest court, the Traffic Authority.
If the Authority concludes that British Airways is responsible for the delay or cancellation, the case is considered as finalised and the passengers will be compensated for up to 600 € per person.
