French Bee Complaints - Common Issues, Contact Info, and Tips for Passengers

French Bee Complaints - Common Issues, Contact Info, and Tips for Passengers

Touted as the first low-cost long-haul airline, French Bee connects passengers to worldwide leisure destinations for affordable prices. But even when you get a good deal on your flight, it may be necessary (or worthwhile) to file official French Bee complaints.

Whether your experience with the airline involves poor service or French Bee delayed or cancelled flights, as a passenger, you have the right to lodge a complaint. We’ll provide an overview of your passenger rights, how to contact the airline for the best results, and explain how we can make the French Bee complaints procedure even easier.

What French Bee Complaints Are Worthwhile?

A little compensation can go a long way in rectifying French Bee complaints. Here are a few scenarios where passengers may qualify for compensation:

  • French Bee flight delays: Flight delays can entitle passengers to up to €600 in compensation when the flight is delayed by 3 hours minimum.
  • French Bee cancelled flights: When your trip is cancelled with fewer than 14 days' notice, passengers can claim up to €600 for expenses incurred and are entitled to either a replacement flight or a refund.
  • Denied boarding: Let’s say your French Bee flight has been overbooked. If you get bumped, you can complain for compensation amounts similar to a cancelled flight.
  • Mishandled luggage: For delayed, lost, or even damaged luggage, it’s worth filing a French Bee complaint. This can result in a maximum of €1,300 in compensation, depending on your flight’s route.
  • A poor passenger experience: Anyone who books or flies with French Bee should absolutely let the airline know when the service received is unsatisfactory. Then, they can work to improve the passenger experience and may offer future discounts or credits for your trouble.

Making a French Bee complaint - knowing your rights

Passengers’ Rights

As an airline based in France that flies exclusively (currently) to the US, the Dominican Republic, the island of Reunion, and French Polynesia, French Bee is bound by Regulation EU 261. This applies to any routes that leave from or arrive at an EU airport.

As we alluded to above, this regulation is what mandates an airline payout when your flight is delayed by at least 3 hours, your flight is cancelled without proper notice, and instances of denied boarding.

For luggage, it’s the Montreal Convention that dictates the compensation when you make French Bee complaints about mishandled bags.

Tips for Submitting French Bee Complaints

Issues are best addressed once you’ve finished travelling, so when you need to make French Bee after travel complaints, make sure you:

  • Submit ASAP. Details become fuzzy, and things get lost the longer you take to file an official French Bee complaint.
  • Keep it all. Anything from photos to booking numbers to records of correspondence may be requested by the airline, so keep everything!
  • Provide contact details. Regardless of the type of French Bee complaint, the airline will need to contact you. Give them an email you check regularly and a direct phone number.
  • Stay specific. Be as clear as possible about how the complaint came about, and specify how you expect the issue to be resolved. Reference the EU 261 regulation and amounts if needed.
