  • Your check-in for the flight was on time (usually not less than 45 minutes before the flight).

Jonas och hans familj sparade 7.682 kr

Vi är så glada över att vi köpt Ifdelayed Premium. Min familj fick ut 25.824 kr för en försenad flight från New York i somras och tack vare vårt medlemskap fick vi behålla 100% av ersättningen själva.

I’m happy that I used the services of IFDELAYED

I’m happy that I used the services of IFDELAYED even though I couldn’t receive the full compensation due to “capacity issues in Germany and many other countries in the EU”. Nevertheless my additional expenses like hotel and transfer were paid for as well. I would definitely recommend this company if you have any kind of issues with your flight.
