EY 26 Flight Delayed: Compensation

If your Etihad Airways flight EY 26 departing London heading to Abu Dhabi 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 Etihad Airways to pay compensation for minor delays less than 3 hours. Eligibility criteria for valid compensation claim requires that your flight EY 26 must arrive in Abu Dhabi at least 3 hours late. The distance between Abu Dhabi 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 EY 26.

Tip: If Abu Dhabi 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 EY 26 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 EY 26 compensation and to determine the accurate amount of compensation payable by Etihad Airways. Make sure to use our free flight checker not to miss out on your compensation claim.

EY 26 Flight Cancelled: Right to Claim a Refund

If you arranged and paid for a rebooking of an alternative flight, Etihad Airways shall compensate any such expenses. Etihad Airways shall also cover reasonable costs of a temporary hotel stay in case of overnight delay.

It is important to properly track all expenses and keep originals of all receipts. This would be required by lawyers to build up a legal case. Our professional team has experience handling such claims against Etihad Airways. Airlines tend to disregard complaints filed by passengers without legal representation, however Etihad Airways take our complaints more seriously as we have strong legal expertise and strong legal support to resolve those cases in courts if needed.

Our team recommends you to avoid accepting airline vouchers in lieu of a ticket refund, as Etihad Airways vouchers or credits typically have a lot of limitations and a short validity period without option of extension. Airlines often insist on offering passengers to accept vouchers, because Etihad Airways knows well that most passengers will not use vouchers.
