UA 991 Flight Delayed: Compensation

If your flight UA 991 Barcelona to Washington was delayed, you may be entitled to compensation for a flight delay, depending on the circumstances. Regulation EC 261/2004 is a European Union law that gives passengers the right to compensation for flight delay inconvenience and lost time.

The law does not provide compensation for minor delays less than 3 hours. So to be entitled to make a valid compensation claim, your flight UA 991 must arrive in Washington at least 3 hours late. The distance between Barcelona and Washington is the main determining factor for compensation calculation for your flight UA 991.

Flight from Barcelona to Washington was delayed by 2 hours which caused us to miss the connecting flight from Washington to Detroit. We had to change this connecting flight to the next flight to Detroit. We had to wait another 6 to 7 hours while in Washington DC airport for this later flight.

There was a problem with the wing that needed maintenance and they took the inbound aircraft out of service. They refunded (or offered to refund) only the costs I paid to upgrade to business class, not the cost of the ticket. Due to medical requirements I was forced to book a one-way with another airline at nearly double the price of my round trip ticket (USD2622 versus USD 1642)
