U2 8997 Flight Delayed: Compensation

If you are experiencing a flight delay with your easyJet flight U2 8997 flying out of London en route to Prague, there might be flight delay compensation that you could be entitled to. However you should bear in mind that the eligibility depends on the specific details of the disruption. Regulation EU EC261/ 2004 protects the rights to monetary compensation for every passenger in cases of delay, no matter how much the original ticket cost and whether or not it was purchased by you or by somebody else on your behalf.

That being said, it should be noted that the EU Regulation obliges the easyJet to pay compensation only in cases where the delay is longer than 3 hours. The amount of time you are delayed is determined by how late you arrive at your final destination, not by how long you wait at the airport. The number of kilometres you have to travel between Prague and London will be the most determining point in establishing the amount of monetary compensation you could be claiming for your flight U2 8997.

Tip: In cases relating to connecting flight delay compensation when your journey consists of two flights booked under the same reservation number, you can claim compensation for the distance between the London and the Prague.

Our team at AirAdvisor has developed online services that can help you check if you are eligible for compensation from easyJet for your flight U2 8997, and how much compensation you are owed. Our free flight checker is very useful and can help you to ensure getting compensated if your circumstances meet the criteria.

U2 8997 Flight Cancelled: Right to Claim a Refund

If your flight with easyJet gets cancelled, they are required by law to satisfy your request for a ticket refund and to reimburse you for any additional expenses that were a direct result of the disruption of your U2 8997 flight. The easyJet is responsible for reimbursing you for the cost of new tickets if you have to rebook and purchase an alternative flight to your destination. In addition to that, if the disruption causes you to wait for the next flight overnight, the easyJet must provide you with a budget to pay for a hotel stay.

Bear in mind that if you would like to claim for any additional expenses, you should keep all of the original receipts and have digital copies of them if possible. Such records would help the lawyers make a stronger compensation case for you. The legal team of AirAdvisor has extensive experience in dealing with such cases against easyJet. Many airlines may not respond to compensation requests from passengers without legal representation. However, easyJet is more likely to respond to claims submitted by a company with strong legal expertise and a network of experienced international lawyers, who are willing to take cases to court if necessary.

If you are offered a voucher as compensation for an unused ticket, we strongly recommend that you do not accept it. Vouchers and credits from easyJet usually have a lot of limitations, including an expiration date, which can prevent passengers from being able to use them at all. The vouchers make it easier for airlines to avoid dealing with delays and cancellations, as they know that many people don't use them.

We were told the disruption is due to a pilot not being available for the flight. We were told that there's a 90% chance that the flight will be cancelled and there was no announcement confirming the flight is leaving almost 4 hours later. We made it to the flight because we went to the gate proactively. we arrived the desalination a little over 4 hours later. we missed a dinner cruise we were due for on the day. I did submit


David from United Kingdom (easyJet U2 8997 Flight delay)

The captain apologised that the flight was initially delayed and said that the flight had gone tech on the previous flight. We were then told that the flight was further delayed as there was no ground staff available to unload previous flights luggage from the hold. We were then advised that this meant the crew had gone out of hours so we had to wait while another crew got sent out. The aircraft then went tech again and had to get a generator to get AC working before we finally departed.
