United Airlines Flight Delay / Cancellation / Denied Boarding Problems

United Airlines operates in 60 countries spread across every continent in the world. However, at times, you may confront issue because of flight delays or cancellations and hence you have to know your rights for such inconvenience. Department of Transportation also known as DOT has set certain air-travel rights for people who are travelling from US to EU. If you are bumped due to overbooking, delayed for 3 hours or went through flight cancelation, you have right to claim for compensation. Whereas, if your flight departed from EU, EC Regulation 261/2004 is the rule for compensation claims.

EC Regulation 261/2004 EU Air Passenger Rights

EC Regulation 261/2004 (dated 17 February 2005) applies to air passengers departing from any EU airport, or from a non-EU airport with an EU airline to an EU destination. Passengers must note that flight delay compensation is subject to certain conditions and exceptions. There will be no compensation for a delay / cancellation caused by an extraordinary circumstance, under which such delay / cancellation becomes uncontrollable. An example of such situations includes bad weather or security concerns such as fear of a terror attack. In such situations, passengers will not be given any compensation.

Nevertheless, if there is a delay of more than 4 hours for a flight of 3500 km or more; delay of 3 hours or more in intra-community flight of 1500 km or more; and delay of 3 hours in case of flight under 1500 km, the passenger is entitled to claim compensation under EU norms as set by the Regulation. This entitlement is when the delay is not caused by extraordinary circumstances.

If you travelled with United Airlines and your flight was delayed or cancelled without any prior notice or for reasons which could have been easily avoided by the airline, then according to Regulation (EC) No. 261/2004, you can claim compensation up to 600€. This takes into account distance of travel and the delay duration which should be more than 3 hours.


  • If your travel distance is 1,500 km or less then you can claim up to 250€ ($280)
  • Between 1,500 to 3,500 km claimable amount is up to 400€ ($450)


  • If you travel up to 1,500 km or less, then you claim up to 250€ ($280)
  • If distance is between 1,500 to 3,500 km, then you claim up to 400€ ($450)
  • And if the distance is more than 3500 km and flight delays for more than 4 hours then you claim up to 600€ ($670)

Am I Eligible To Claim Compensation?

EC Regulation 261/2004 is a European law, it applies to EU airspace. You do not have to be an EU citizen to claim flight compensation. This means that you can claim on flights departing from any airport located in the EU (with any airline) or arriving in the EU (with an EU airline). Thus, you are eligible to claim for United Airlines delays or cancellations.
