What Compensation Am I Entitled To?
If you have experienced a delayed flight, the airline must offer you options to compensate for the inconvenience caused. What you’re entitled to depends on the length of the delay. Such compensation is outlined below.
A Delay of Two or More Hours
If your flight was delayed two or more hours, your airline has a duty to compensate you in the form of vouchers. Passengers are entitled to the following:
- Food and drink
- Access to phone calls and emails
- Overnight accommodation (if passengers are delayed overnight)
- Airport transfers
It’s important to know that not all airlines are forthcoming with what passengers who have been delayed for approximately two hours are entitled to. If your airline did not offer you vouchers for any of the above, keep receipts. You may be able to claim compensation later.
Additionally, alcohol, expensive means and luxury accommodation are not considered by airlines to be ‘reasonable expenses’ and, as such, cannot be claimed back.
A Delay of Three or More Hours
Once a delay exceeds three hours, you have a legal right to claim compensation – providing that the delay was not caused by ‘extraordinary circumstances.’
A Delay of Five or More Hours
If they flight is delayed for five hours or more, you are under no legal obligation to take the flight. This is true, regardless of the circumstances surrounding the delay.

- Full refund for the flight
- Full return and connecting flight refund
- A return flight, if the delayed flight is the connecting one
- Food and drink
- Access to phone calls and emails
- Accommodation and transfer, if you’re delayed overnight
Taking the Flight
If you choose to take the flight, you can still claim compensation, providing that the delay was not caused by ‘extraordinary circumstances.’

The amount of compensation you could receive is not related to the cost of your ticket, but the length of the delay and distance travelled. So, whether you paid £50 or £1000 for your ticket, the amount of compensation you could be entitled to remains the same.
