In the case of a flight delay of more than 2 hours, the Austrian ground staff must offer you free meal and drink tickets according to the waiting time required. In addition, the user is entitled to two telephone calls, fax messages or e-mails.

In addition, reimbursement and return flight. If your flight is delayed for more than 5 hours, in addition to assistance, you are entitled to a refund, within 7 days, of the full cost of the unused leg(s). It may also be the case that Austrian must provide you with a return flight to the first point of departure in the event that you have already made the first leg and miss the connecting flight.
What compensation am I entitled to if Austrian's flight is delayed?
Compensation for delay of a flight from Austrian
The delay entitling you to compensation is calculated according to the time of arrival at your destination. If you arrive at your destination 3 hours or more after the scheduled time, you are also entitled to claim financial compensation, except if the delay is due to extraordinary circumstances such as weather conditions. The amount to be received will vary depending on the distance to the destination.
- Up to 1500 km, it is 250 euros.
- Between 1501 and 3500 km, it is 400 euros.
- If the distance exceeds 3500 km, then the amount to be claimed is 600 euros.
What should Austrian compensate in case of cancellation?
In case of cancellation by the air carrier Austrian, a flight has to be made with compensation to the passenger. The only exception is if the cancellation is due to extraordinary circumstances that could not have been avoided (political instability, weather conditions incompatible with the operation of the flight, safety risks, unexpected flight safety shortcomings, airport congestion, air traffic management and strikes affecting the air carrier's operations).
If the air carrier Austrian gives the passenger between two weeks and seven days notice of the cancellation of the flight in advance of the scheduled departure time, and if the passenger is offered re-routing that allows him/her to depart no more than two hours before the original departure of the flight, then he/she cannot claim compensation on the grounds of the cancellation. Furthermore, Austrian must also ensure that he/she arrives at his/her final destination less than four hours later than the scheduled arrival time of the originally contracted flight.
If Austrian is notified to the passenger less than seven days before the scheduled departure time and the passenger is not offered another flight that allows him/her to depart no more than one hour before the original departure time of his/her flight, then the passenger of Austrian may claim under similar conditions as for the delay. The criterion will be according to the length of the flight for a higher or lower amount: for flights of less than 1,500 km it will be EUR 250.
For intra-Community flights of more than 1,500 km the amount will rise to 400 euros and for the rest of the trips, between 1,500 and 3,500 km, as well as the rest of the flights not included in the previous points, the amount will rise to 600 euros. Compensation will be paid by bank transfer.
What should Austrian compensate in case of overbooking?
In the event that Austrian is overbooked, then the airline has to pay compensation to the passenger.
It may happen that, for various reasons, the aircraft cannot operate with all passengers on board. In this situation of 'overbooking', according to the provisions of EC Regulation 261/04, Austrian has to look for volunteers who can change the date or time of their flight in exchange for compensation and assistance. If not enough volunteers are found, passengers who cannot fly will be entitled to compensation, assistance and reimbursement of the ticket or re-routing.
What are my rights if Austrian has denied me boarding due to overbooking?
In the case of Austrian overbooking, compensation will depend on the distance of the flight and the hours of delay in arriving at your destination. You will be entitled to compensation, which you can request through the Austrian customer service.
For flights of less than 1500 km, the amount will be 250 euros. For flights between 1501 and 3500 km, the amount rises to 400 euros. For overbooked flights over 3500 km, the compensation can be up to 600 euros.
