British Airways: Compensation for Flight Delays and Cancellations

British Airway's claim processing is way above average. Because they operate a lot of flights, it's not uncommon for the airline to either delay or cancel some of them. If this happens to you, ClaimCompass can help you claim up to 600€. Our team of experts will communicate with the airline to ensure that you receive the compensation you are due. British Airways is very fair in their process and pay relatively fast.
