Compensation for a Delayed Flight by Lufthansa
Even though Lufthansa tries to keep to their schedule, flights may still arrive late. Fortunately, as a passenger, you are protected by air passenger rights when Lufthansa flights are delayed.
Since Lufthansa is based in the EU, nearly all of its flights are protected by EC 261, one of the most comprehensive laws globally protecting air passenger rights.
EC Regulation 261 gives passengers the right to claim compensation for delayed, cancelled, or overbooked flights that are not their fault.
There are some extraordinary circumstances such as bad weather or airport problems that may exempt airlines from paying compensation. However, if the delay is caused by technical issues or a strike by airline staff, you will likely be eligible for compensation under Regulation (EC) No. 261/2004.
Additionally, you generally have up to 3 years to make a claim for compensation for a delayed Lufthansa flight. Just enter your flight information, and our user-friendly flight delay compensation calculator will determine if you qualify for monetary compensation, and our team of professionals will be available to help you obtain it.

Flight Cancellation Compensation Lufthansa
In the event of a Lufthansa flight cancellation, European laws on air passenger rights are clear: Lufthansa must offer you alternative transportation to get to your destination or, if you prefer, a refund.
Furthermore, if you received a notice regarding cancellation less than 14 days before departure, you may also be eligible to claim compensation of up to US$700 per person.
When Lufthansa cancels flights, it will usually attempt to rebook passengers on another flight at no extra cost. If this does not work for you, you may request other changes or choose to no longer take the trip.
If Lufthansa books you a new flight that arrives at a similar time to your original flight, it is not required to pay compensation. This is because your plans will have minimal disruption. However, in many cases, passengers whose flights are cancelled at the last minute have the right to file a claim for compensation against Lufthansa.
These rights do not apply if the flight cancellation was caused by an event beyond Lufthansa's control, such as severe weather conditions or an accident at the airport. Such events are referred to as exceptional circumstances.
