The airline should respond to you within six weeks; however, that’s not always the case. If they don’t, you can submit your claim directly to the enforcement body within the country that the flight issue occurred. They likely will not be able to overrule the decision; however, visibility into continued issues will help them hold the airlines accountable in the long term.
In some cases, airline’s may try to fight your claim to get out of paying. If that’s the case, flight compensation companies can advocate on your behalf to get you the money you deserve. They may need to go to court or mediate alternative discussions, which is why some may take a flat fee from your winnings.
At the end of the day, your time is valuable, and you should be compensated for your inconvenience. This simple EC261/2004 form can help kickstart the process.
