Airline Rating & Flight Compensation

Alaska Airlines Flight Delays Compensation 

When your international flight with Alaska Airlines is delayed, there is a chance that you’re eligible for a compensation. But because Alaska Airlines is a US and not a European airline, this applies only to their flights departing from Europe, not to flights leaving from out of Europe and arriving in Europe.

Why can you hope for a compensation in these cases? Because the EU Regulation 261/2004 (EC261 in short) protects your passenger rights, even if you’re travelling on a US airline and you’re not a citizen of the EU. The airline (probably) hasn’t told you about those - few airlines do, especially non-EU airlines.

So next time your flight from Europe with Alaska Airlines is delayed, take the time to verify whether you’re eligible: you may get up to 600€ from the airline. Just fill out our calculator and you will know in less than 3 minutes what you can hope for!
