United Airlines Cancelled and Delayed Flight Compensation

Airline Rating & Flight Compensation

United Airlines Flight Delays Compensation 

If you’ve been flying with United Airlines, it’s possible that your flight was delayed. Claim up to $700 in compensation for your delayed flight with United Airlines. While the airline does its best to stick to the scheduled arrival time, some of its flights do arrive late - like any other airline. If you had a flight delay with the US air carrier, you might want to check if you're entitled to compensation. 

 

When the delay was caused by “extraordinary circumstances” such as a strike, Air Traffic Control restrictions, or adverse weather conditions, then the airline cannot be held responsible and no compensation is due to their passengers.

 

But when the delay was the responsibility of United Airlines, then the airline must pay you up to 600€ for your trouble. This includes cases of “technical issues” or “operational difficulties”. The EU Regulation 261/2004, also known as EC261, protects your air passenger rights. And ClaimCompass is here to enforce them for you. Because United Airlines is a US airline, however, EC261 only applies to their flights leaving from Europe. For more information, you can take a look at our complete guide on flight delay compensation.

 

With our Flight Delay Compensation Calculator, you can fill out your flight details and know if you’re eligible and to what amount, in less than 2 minutes. Give us the authorization to represent you in front of United Airlines, sit back, and we’ll get your compensation for you.

      About 20% of the airline’s flights arrive 15 minutes after their scheduled landing time or more: that’s a good score for the industry. However, the average delay of United Airlines’ flight is a whopping 71 minutes, one of the worst. As a result, United Airlines’ overall flight performance is only just above average, with a rating of 5.4 out of 10.

      United Airlines Flight Cancellation Compensation 

      Delays are only one of the flight disruptions that travellers can be confronted to: you can also get a compensation for a canceled flight. United Airlines sometimes cancels 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 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 United Airlines is responsible for the cancellation of a flight leaving from the EU.

       

      There are a few additional rules that make the calculation of your flight cancellation 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. Check out your passenger rights in cases of cancelled flights to learn more on the topic! You also might want to take a look at United's 24-hour flexible booking policy for flight cancellations.
