Flight passengers who miss a connecting flight due to an airline's mistake and are delayed for more than 3 hours will be able to claim up to 600 Euro compensation. The amount of compensation is based on the flight distance. The listing below shows you how the amount of compensation is usually calculated:
• The airline has to be responsible for the missed connecting flight.
• The check-in was on time.
• The flight was due to depart within the EU or land within the EU. (If landed in the EU, the airline must also have its headquarters in an EU country.)
• The missed connecting flight does not date back more than 3 years.
tipp : Tipp: Auch wenn die Fluggesellschaft Essens- und Getränkegutscheinen an Sie ausgegeben hat, haben Sie weiterhin vollen Anspruch auf Entschädigung.
In the event that a flight delay leads to a missed connecting flight, and the arrival at the final destination is at least three hours late, air passengers do have a claim for compensation! For this to apply your flight plan has to be one booking. It does not matter whether the flights were operated all by the same or by different airlines. Flight passengers who booked their air trip with one single booking are entitled to an alternative transportation or a compensation in case they miss a connecting flight due to a precious flight delay.
If air passengers have booked their connecting flights separately using different airlines and the first flight is delayed so that they miss their connecting flight, there is unfortunately nothing to be done. They do not have the right for alternative transportation neither.
The first step to do is to ensure that you are eligible for a compensation payment. This can sometimes be a stressful and difficult procedure. You need to get access to flight databases, you need to compare your situation with similar cases and you must check whether your individual case is regulated by the EU law. That means, for a private person without any legal expertise it can be pretty difficult to claim for a compensation.
