BA 285 Flight Delayed: Compensation

If your British Airways flight BA 285 departing London heading to San Francisco got delayed, you may be eligible for compensation for a flight delay, which depends on circumstances of a flight disruption. Regulation EU EC261/ 2004 is a European Union regulation that mandates the right to compensation for flight delay inconvenience and lost time for every passenger affected regardless of ticket price and if somebody else paid for tickets.

However, the EU Regulation does not require British Airways to pay compensation for minor delays less than 3 hours. Eligibility criteria for valid compensation claim requires that your flight BA 285 must arrive in San Francisco at least 3 hours late. The distance between San Francisco and London is the one of the major factors that influences the amount of compensation that you might be able to claim for your flight BA 285.

Tip: If San Francisco is not your final destination, the amount of compensation must be calculated based on the distance between the point of your original departure: London and your ultimate final destination if both flights are booked under the same reservation.

To make sure you don’t miss a chance to claim compensation, our system allows you to instantly check your flight BA 285 eligibility and determine the correct amount of compensation due to you. It is free to check your flight.

Technology developed by our team from AirAdvisor allows you to check eligibility of your claim for flight BA 285 compensation and to determine the accurate amount of compensation payable by British Airways. Make sure to use our free flight checker not to miss out on your compensation claim.
