Emirates could owe you a compensation for flight delay if your flight with them arrived at destination at least 3 hours late. For you to be eligible, the plane must have departed from the EU and Emirates must be responsible for the flight delay.
Airlines operate hundreds of flights every month - even thousands or tens of thousands for the largest ones. It’s no surprise that a portion of these flights is delayed. Emirates is no exception: it might be one of the best airlines in the world for its punctuality, some of the airline’s flights still arrive later than planned at their destination.
When Emirates could have avoided the delay but failed to do so, it’s only fair that passengers get compensated. That’s what the European law states. EC261 protects your passenger rights and requires airlines to pay up to 600€ per passenger in compensation for flight delays (check out this guide for more info on delayed flights). To know exactly how much the airline owes you, the fastest and easiest solution is to fill out our Flight Delay Compensation Calculator.

Delays are only one of the (many) flight disruptions that travellers can be confronted to. Worst than delaying them, airlines are responsible for cancelling flights. This is sure to put your travel plans in jeopardy.
As every airline, Emirates sometimes cancel their flight. Obviously, they don’t do it to annoy their passengers, and when it happens, they try to rebook them on another flight. It doesn’t change the fact that passengers’ plans take a serious hit when this happens.
On the brighter side, if the airline was responsible for the flight cancellation and failed to send you a 14-day notice, then you are likely to be eligible for a compensation under the EU Regulation 261/2004. The EU law protects your rights when Emirates is responsible for the cancellation.
There are a few additional rules that make the calculation of your cancelled flight compensation slightly more complicated than in cases of delayed flights. But the experts at ClaimCompass always make sure that you get the maximum amount that you are entitled to. Submit your claim in less than 3 minutes, sit back, and wait till we secure your money for you.
Unfortunately, Emirates is among the least efficient airlines regarding the processing of compensation claims. Some claims get totally ignored and as a result, passengers have no idea what to do. For reference, here is some info on the claim processing performance of Emirates:
