French Bee Flight Compensation Claims

As a passenger, you may be entitled to compensation if the following have occurred:

  • Flight delay: If your flight arrived 3+ hours late at your final destination.
  • French Bee Cancel Flight: if French Bee cancelled your flight and informed you less than 14 days before departure.
  • Overbooking: If you have been denied boarding due to overbooking.
  • Missed connecting flight: If you missed a connecting flight due to a delay in one of the legs and you arrived at your destination 3+ hours late.

 

French Bee Flight Cancellations: When are they Liable?

When French Bee can escape liability: French Bee claims if a flight was cancelled due to events outside of its control; for example bad weather, or issues at the airport. Such events are typically called extraordinary circumstances and in such cases, you are not entitled to a French Bee missed flight refund.

All airlines will generally try to book you on the next available flight at no additional charge, in the case of cancelled flights. You may agree to the proposed flight or request another replacement flight, or demand reimbursement if you are not happy with any of the options proposed.

Note: If your rebooked scheduled departure arrives at a similar time to your original departure time, you're not entitled compensation. The law is fair and allows airlines not to pay compensation if you can reach your destination with minimum inconvenience. In most cases, passengers who have a cancelled flight will have valid claims for a French Bee flight compensation.

An airport employees’ strike is beyond anyone's control. Learn more about cancellation compensation.

When French Bee cannot escape liability: When French Bee cancel flights, EU 261 Regulation on air passenger rights are clear: You must be put on an alternative flight or provided with a full flight refund.

Also, if you were notified about the flight cancellation less than 14 days before your date of departure, you may be able to receive up to €600 per person in compensation. Additionally, you may receive French Bee flight delay compensation if you arrived 3+ hours later than the scheduled arrival time of your initial flight.

French Bee Flight Refund policy

A flight compensation and a refund are two different things. Regulations allow you to receive both: a cancellation refund and compensation.

In case of a cancellation, an airline will try to re-book you on the similar flight, but if that becomes impossible, a cancellation refund will be a full cash refund. Generally, your claim would succeed, providing there were no extraordinary circumstances beyond airline control.

If French Bee cancels your flight to extraordinary circumstances (such as Covid travel restrictions or a serious illness) and you were offered no replacement flight, you can obtain a ticket refund in full, since your flights booked were not available.

Types of ticket refunds: A full refund must be in cash or credit. Vouchers are allowed only if you specifically agree to it. We do not recommend accepting vouchers due to short expiry dates and potential restrictions on redemption.

Note: If French Bee offers a replacement flight with approximately the same arrival time and you decide not to take it, there is a possibility of you losing the right to get both compensation and a ticket refund. 

Rule of thumb: you can generally reject alternative flights and receive a refund in full, if a new replacement flight arrives 3+ hours later from your initial scheduled arrival time.

French Bee Flight Delay Compensation

While all airlines attempt to operate on time, sometimes delays happen. EU regulation 261 (EU 261) protects passengers in cases of flight delays.

According to EC 261, if your flight arrives later than 3 hours at your final destination, you may be eligible to file a French Bee delayed flight compensation claim form to receive up to €600 as a flight refund.

Exclusions: French Bee delayed flight compensation will not be enforceable in case of extraordinary circumstances. If the flight departure time is delayed because of bad weather or any airport related disruption, that is considered an extraordinary circumstance. Technical problems, airline staff strike, or operational problems are not valid reasons for rejected compensation claims.

Tip: accepting vouchers or signing release paperwork will result in losing the right to compensation.

Common questions: Compensation Claims and Refunds

What to do when your French Bee flight is cancelled?

Confirm the reason for a flight cancellation with the airline ticket desk. Also, collect receipts for any additional expenses for reimbursement later. Ask the airline to provide food and refreshments for a delay of 3 hours or more. If your replacement flight is departing the next day, the airline must provide hotel accommodation and transportation. Finally, use our free online compensation calculator to check if you are eligible for compensation and submit a French Bee refund for cancellation.

What if I cancel my French Bee flight? Can I get a refund?

If French Bee cancels the flight, they must refund the price of ticket to passengers. But if you decide to voluntarily cancel your scheduled flight, you are not entitled to a refund. French Bee cancellation policy is restrictive, unless you have a flexible fare, which allows you to reschedule your flight to a later date with minimal cost.

Note: regardless of ticket type, passengers have the right to request a refund amount for airport taxes and fees as part of a cancellation refund.

Do I also get my money back for the French Bee cancelled a flight due to Covid-19?

If French Bee cancelled a flight due to Covid-19, passengers are entitled to a reimbursement as part of flight cancellation rights. If French Bee attempts to reimburse your cancelled flight with a voucher, we do not recommend taking it. Instead, apply for a refund. If your refund claim is rejected, AirAdvisor can help enforce your claim through our external lawyers.

Can I Get a French Bee Refund?

If you cancel your flight without selecting a refundable, flexible fare option, than your rights to refund are limited only to airport taxes and fees. In case French Bee cancels your flight, you can demand airline to honor your rightful request for a full refund of the ticket price.

Eric from United States (USA) (French Bee BF 743 Flight cancellation)
May 7, 2024, 4:36 pm

13 hours before our trip we were notified that our flight had been cancelled because FrenchBee could not work out a resolution for the ATC strike in Paris. The rescheduled flight was 25 hours later and had significant impacts to our travel and we got a refund and had to rebook on a different airline(AirFrance) to get to Paris for our appointments at a significant additional cost. We lost out on approximately 1800 USD between the two tickets (mine and my wifes).


Alessandra from Italy (French Bee BF 715 Flight delay)

Due to the delay, I lost my connection flight from Paris to Catania planned at 4 pm. Moreover, the air company was very confusing and unfair by changing several time the amount of delay prevented for the departure, so it has not been possible to plan another travel solution due to not clear information about the delay. In conclusion, when arrived in Paris, I lost my flight to Catania, I needed to spent the night in Paris and to book another flight for Catania, with a significant loss of money and time.
