The three secrets for a stress-free flight delay

Friday, September 28, 2018

Flight delayed? No worries! We will share three secrets with you that will help you through the uncomfortable experience of having your flight delayed.

Secret #1: Keep an eye on your flight information

Follow the airline and the airport on social media and especially Twitter. Airlines and airports are getting better at updating their passengers and very often use Twitter as a medium. Of course this is not always the case, so one way to get updates is to send a tweet immediately. Knowing what is going with your flight will make a huge difference when it comes to your stress level.

Secret #2: time to relax

Secret #1 is active and already helping you decompress; you are being kept up to date on the latest information and therefore you know exactly how long your flight is delayed. Time to look for a comfortable place to relax. You have airport and airline lounges where you can go if you are a premium member or frequent flyer. These lounges have good food and a good Wi-Fi connection. Because you know how long you have to wait, you avoid booking the lounge for more time that needed, great! Once booked you can relax and enjoy. After all, you are on holiday!

Secret #3: You can actually receive money for your delayed flight

Unfortunately, airlines are very secretive about the right to compensation even though every single passenger flying internally in Europe, and in some other scenarios, has its rights protected by law. The information is not being shared between passengers either, travellers who are aware of their right to compensation in case of a flight delay, cancellation and overbooking make up just a small fraction of overall passengers. When it comes to compensation, if your flight is delayed by more than three hours, you are entitled to claim. We specialise in claiming compensation and are the champions of passenger rights. As soon as your flight delay has reached three hours, you can start dreaming about your next holiday, paid with the compensation that Flight-Delayed will get you!
