Understanding your Rights for Lufthansa Flight Delays
You may be entitled to compensation for Lufthansa LH499 flight delays, depending upon certain conditions.
EU Regulation 261/2004 provides rights to air travelers, and significantly delayed flights can entitle you to compensation.
To determine if you are eligible for flight delay compensation, your flight needs to meet the following criteria:
- The delay exceeds three hours upon arrival at the final destination.
- The flight departed from an EU airport or arrived at an EU airport operated by an EU-regulated airline.
- The disruption was within the airline’s control, excluding extraordinary circumstances like severe weather conditions or air traffic control strikes.
Understanding your Rights for Lufthansa Flight Cancellations
If your Lufthansa flight LH499 gets canceled without prior notice of at least 14 days, you could be eligible for compensation or a refund.
Under EU law, you could claim compensation for flight cancellations under the following conditions
- You were informed about flight cancellations less than 14 days prior to departure
- Your flight’s departure was from the EU airport, or arrival at the EU airport with an EU-regulated airline
- The reason behind the cancellation was the airlines’ responsibility, and not due to extraordinary circumstances
How Much Can You Claim for Your LH499 Delays or Cancellations?
The amount of compensation for LH499 delays or cancellations can vary depending on the distance of the flight and the length of the delay.
- For short trips covering a distance of up to 1,500 km and delays over 3 hours, you could receive €250 as compensation.
- For medium-distance journeys spanning up to 3,500 km and delays over 3 hours, you are eligible for €400 in compensation.
- For long-haul flights covering a distance of 3,500 km or more and delays over 4 hours, you can claim €600 as compensation.
