You are entitled to LEVEL's flight delay compensation if your flight was delayed by more than 3 hours due to the airline's fault.
How can you be sure that the delay is the airline's fault? Check out the "Extraordinary Circumstances" section of this article or simply claim online now with Flight-Delayed.co.uk. Our expert will evaluate your claim and handle the process for you.
Depending on the exact circumstances surrounding your LEVEL flight cancellation, in the event of a cancelled LEVEL flight, you may be entitled to compensation up to £520, a refund – or even both!
You can claim LEVEL compensation if your flight was cancelled fewer than 14 days prior to the originally scheduled departure.
The airline must have been the party at fault for the cancellation.
You can claim a LEVEL ticket refund if your flight was cancelled and you did not take an alternative flight — whether the airline offered it to you, or not.
|Cancellation notice||Alternative flight||Compensation|
|Fewer than 7 days in advance||Departs 1h+ earlier or arrived 2h+ later||Yes|
|7-14 days in advance||Departs 2h+ earlier or arrived 4h+ later||Yes|
|Fewer than 14 days in advance||No alternative flight offered||Yes + refund|
The amount of compensation per passenger is calculated based on the distance of the flight:
|Distance of your flight||Compensation|
|Flights shorter than 1,500 km||Get £220 per passenger|
|Flight between 1,500 and 3,500 km||Get £350 per passenger|
|Flights of over 1,500 kilometres within the EU||Get £350 per passenger|
|Flights of over 3,500 kilometres outside of the EU||Get £520 per passenger|
Yes. Whether you were flying with LEVEL to South America or to the Middle East, you can claim compensation in the event of a disrupted flight.

|Type of flight||Example||Compensation|
|Flying with a British carrier||Tokyo to London with British Airways||Yes|
|Flying with a EU carrier||Amsterdam to London with KLM||Yes|
|Flying with a non-UK/non-EU carrier from the UK||London to Tokyo with Japan Airlines||Yes|

We call extraordinary circumstances situations in which the delay or cancellation is not the fault of the airline. If any of the below apply to your flight disruption, you might not be entitled to flight compensation.
Bad weather conditions, such as thick fog, heavy rain, or thunderstorms.
A strike, most often specifically within the aviation industry (for example, a strike of air traffic control workers at a specific airport).
However, a strike of the airline's crew is not considered an extraordinary circumstance!
Political circumstances, such as a terrorist attack or general security risk due to political unrest.
Natural disasters, including volcanic eruptions and hurricanes.
A collision between the aircraft and birds or other foreign objects.
An ill or unruly passenger.
Flight delays caused by the airport staff, such as extraordinarily long queues to security checks.
