Can I get compensated for a delayed or cancelled Ethiopian Airlines 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).

They got me my Money back!

It took them around 6 months to do it but it was worth the wait.
Just got a reply that they managed to get me 600£ back.

To know that someone out there was willing to go help the ones who can’t do this themselves for a small fee. It’s very comforting.

Now i know i can rely on someone if there’s delays in the future!

Money in the bank about three months later! My only criticism would be the lack of status updates throughout the process, otherwise top notch.

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.
