November 17, 2019, 3:47 pm

This is complaint for a delay flight for more tha 5 hours ( Regulation CE 261/2004 ) . Ticket 016XXXX9 and 016XXXX000 . Our flight UA 56 on July 23 2019 was scheduled to arrive at 11.05 and finally arrived at 16.05. We were supposed to depart at 09.45 and was still on the ground until 14.59 the pictures sent are proof . The reason of the delay is regarding a food cart in the back of the aircraft. We would like to request a compensation based on the European regulation 261/2004 of Febuary 2004 in case of a cancellation, delay or boarding denial travelling from European Union Countries.
