VS 26 Flight Delayed: Compensation

If your flight VS 26 New York to London 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 VS 26 must arrive in London at least 3 hours late. The distance between New York and London is the main determining factor for compensation calculation for your flight VS 26.

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