As the market-leading air passenger rights portal, we represent consumers against the airlines when it comes to flight problems such as delays, cancellations and denied boarding. In doing so, we refer to the Air Passenger Rights Regulation 261/2004 (EC 261) and also go to court on behalf of passengers to enforce claims for compensation and ticket refunds. In total, we have already enforced more than 400 million euros in compensation for our customers. Flightright was founded in 2010 by Dr. Philipp Kadelbach and Dr. Sven Bode and is now headed by Managing Director Dr. Jan-Frederik Arnold.
Cancellations, strikes and delays in 2022
The year 2022 was and is characterized by flight chaos, caused by massive planning errors during and after the Corona pandemic on the part of airlines and airports. The result was major waves of cancellations, especially by Lufthansa and Eurowings. But strikes, delays and missing suitcases have also thrown many vacation plans into disarray. Rightly so, many travelers are upset and seek help from Flightright. We estimate the situation at the moment in such a way that passengers also 2023, particularly in the summer vacations, must count again on many cancellations and delays.
