If you have been let down by British Airways and you are looking to make a claim, then our flight compensation calculator can work out how much you can claim for a flight that has been delayed.
What’s great is that the figure quoted in the calculator is per passenger. So you could get up to €600 per passenger which is over £500 for a delayed flight.
If your flight was cancelled by British Airways, then the rules are slightly different and I’d encourage you to check out the BA cancelled flight compensation page of our website.
As family of your travelling could receive in excess of £2000 for a delayed flight.
Passengers have claimed millions back over the years from companies like BA due to unnecessary flight delays.
Once you know if you are eligible to make a claim then you can send a claim letter to:

Expenses As A Result Of A Delay
British Airways have included information on their website on how you can submit an expense claim if your flight is delayed.
BA will reimburse your expenses for any of the following as part of a flight delay:
- Hotel accommodation (where necessary).
- Transport between the hotel and the airport (where necessary).
- Meals and refreshments.
- Two telephone calls or internet-related costs to contact people outside the airport.
Please note that the expenses are in addition to the compensation that you are entitled to, not instead of the compensation.
About British Airways
There are airlines based in Britain, and then there’s British Airways. In a class all its own, BA is an official flag carrier of the United Kingdom. This means they’re a national airline which enjoys certain government privileges while also displaying the country’s flag on their airplanes.
British Airways has the second largest fleet in the UK secondary only to Ryan Air. They also carry the second-largest number of passengers annually. They’re based near the main hub of Heathrow Airport where they own approximately 40% of all available slots.
History of British Airways
British Airways was created after a British Airways Board merged four other airlines. These were the British Overseas Airways Corporation, British European Airways, Cambrian Airways and Northeast Airlines. This merger started in 1972 and was completed on 31 March, 1974, when British Airways debuted to the public. BA was initially state-run but became privatised in 1987 under Margaret Thatcher and the Conservative Government.
Today, their fleet consists of 263 aircraft, pretty much evenly split between Boing and Airbus. Even if you’ve never flown on British Airways, you’re likely familiar with their advertising. The 1989 “Face” campaign is considered a classic in the ad industry.
A World of Travel Awaits
BA is one of the few airlines which provides services to all six inhabited continents. They offer daily service from London to Beijing, Rio de Janeiro, Sydney and more. Daily flights not enough? They offer twice daily flights to Hong Kong and a remarkable 14 daily connections to JFK Airport in New York.
Generally, customers consider BA’s airlines to be clean with a friendly, professional staff. BA also places an emphasis on providing current in-flight entertainment, which can be a life-saver on a long overseas flights.
The Oneworld Alliance
The Oneworld Alliance is a loyalty program shared between many major international airlines. Aside from British Airlines, other member airlines include American Airlines, Air Berlin, Quanta, Cathay Pacific and others. The program was created in 1999 and is still used today by many international frequent fliers.
