Example calculation for AirHelp Limited (China, Hong Kong)

Let us analyze the compensation payment for a flight delay for a US 5 person family flying from Frankfort to New York with a claim amount of 5 x 600€ = 3000€uro. If the claim has to be presented in court AirHelp will charge a 25% Service Fee (150€uro for each person, 750€ for the case) and an additional 25% Legal Action Fee (150€uro for each person, 750€ for the case). In total the family pays 1500€ Service and Legal Action Fee. In addition to these fees a wire fee of 30€ has to be paid if the money should be wired and if an invoice is requested for tax reason an additional 30€ would be charged. This gives a total of 750€uro Service Fee + 750€ Legal Action Fee + 30€ Wire Fee + 60€ Invoice Fee = a total fee of 1590€uro for Airhelp and 1410€uro for the customer and his family.

Is Airhelp fake?

“AirHelp” or AirHelp Limited, is a company officially incorporated in China, Hong Kong (at 9B Amtel Building, 148 Des Voeux Road Central, Central, Hong Kong CB No. 1926223, BR No. 61625023-000, see https://www.airhelp.com/en/terms/ , accessed Nov. 2017).

I have signed a contract with the wrong Air Passenger Right company and I want to change to ClaimFlights now, how can I bring my claim to ClaimFlights?

Do not worry to much, probably you do not have to stick to Chinese or Iranian laws or write letters in Chinese or Iranian. In most countries the place of justice is the country of the end consumer who signed the contract (and not the country from which the company came from). Many countries require a specific form to sign a binding contract between a consumer and a foreign company and you might have the legal right as consumer under consumer protection laws to cancel those contracts. As many of these companies do prepare their terms and conditions in a none-correct way you can probably shift away from them. Send them an email and tell them that you do not want to proceed with them because you do not trust them anymore and tell them that you do not accept any cancel fees or other fees.
