Can I get compensated for a delayed or cancelled AirFrance flight?

You can get compensated if:

  • Your flight reservation was confirmed.
  • You arrived at your final destination more than 3 hours late.
  • If you got an alternative flight and arrived at your final destination significantly later than the original flight was planned.
  • The airline informed you about the flight cancellation less than 14 days before departure.
  • You departed from the EU or arrived at an EU airport (when the airline is an EU-based carrier).
  • Your check-in for the flight was on time (usually not less than 45 minutes before the flight).
  • Your flight was less than 3 years ago as many countries have a flight delay application limit that is less than 3 years.
  • The airline is responsible for the delay (the circumstances for the delay were under the airline’s control).

14 days from start to money in the bank, very good job. Hopefully I will not have to use their services again, but if I do get delayed again – for sure I will. Without doubt.

Made me aware of that I could get compensation for the delay. The registration process could have been easier and the fee to Ifdelayed.com is high.

Jonas and his family saved €720

We´re happy we bought Ifdelayed Premium annual plan. My family and I received €2400 for a delayed flight from New York recently and we got to keep 100% of the commission thanks to Ifldelayed Premium.
