About Etihad Airways
What can I claim from Etihad Airways if my flight is delayed?
Etihad Airways is a company that operates thousands of flights a day, so it is not surprising that delays and cancellations of its flights occur. In the event that the flight is delayed for more than 2 hours, the company's ground staff must offer free food and drink tickets. Depending on the necessary waiting time, the user is entitled to two telephone calls, fax messages or e-mails.
In the event of a delay on your flight with Etihad Airways, a number of issues are very important. If you have arrived at your destination at least 3 hours later than planned, you can get up to 600 euros compensation per flight. If the flight delay is 2 hours, the user can make a claim for up to 250 euros.
If your Etihad Airways 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 Etihad Airways must provide you with a return flight to the first point of departure if you have already made the first leg and miss the connecting flight.
If it is necessary to spend the night on the ground, Etihad Airways must provide accommodation, meals and travel to and from the airport from the place of accommodation. In addition, reimbursement and return flight.
What is the flight delay compensation for Etihad Airways?
Delay in Etihad Airways entitles the customer to compensation calculated according to the time of arrival at the destination. If you arrive at your destination 3 hours or more after the scheduled time, up to 600 euros can be claimed. If it is not more than 2 hours, then the amount is 250 euros. If it is more than 2 hours, but less than 3 hours, then the amount should be around 400 Euros.
The reasons why Etihad Airways can be exempted from this concept is if the delay is due to extraordinary circumstances, such as weather conditions. The amount to be received can also vary depending on the distance to the destination.
Up to 1500 km, the amount to be claimed will be 250 euros. Between 1501 and 3500 km, it will be 400 euros. If the distance exceeds 3500 km, then the amount to be claimed will increase to 600 euros.
What should Etihad Airways compensate for delays, cancellations or overbooking as indicated on its website?
In the event of a delay, cancellation or denied boarding by the air carrier Etihad Airways, compensation must be paid to the passenger in the latter two cases. 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 deficiencies, airport congestion, air traffic management and strikes affecting the air carrier's operations).
If the passenger is given between two weeks and seven days notice of the cancellation of the flight in advance of the scheduled departure time, and is offered re-routing that allows him or her to depart no more than two hours before the original departure time, then he or she cannot claim compensation for the cancellation. In addition, you must also ensure that Etihad Airways arrives at your final destination less than four hours later than the scheduled arrival time of the originally contracted flight.
If the passenger is given less than seven days' notice of the scheduled departure time and 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 Etihad Airways passenger 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.
In the event that Etihad Airways 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 'overbooking' situation, according to the provisions of EC Regulation 261/04, Etihad Airways 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 are entitled to compensation, assistance and reimbursement of the ticket or re-routing.
Regulation (EC) No 261/2004 is a common set of rules on compensation and assistance to passengers in the event of denied boarding, flight cancellations or long flight delays.
What if you are denied boarding at Etihad Airways?
If you are at the airport and are refused boarding, speak to Etihad Airways staff on the ground. They will be able to provide you with information on how to make alternative travel arrangements, as well as claim compensation and request reimbursement of the voucher if you ultimately decline to travel.
As in the previous cases, Etihad Airways must pay for ground transport, accommodation, food and drink. However, this will be to the extent that the costs are in line with Etihad Airways's expense policy. You will also be entitled to compensation in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 261/2004. To check what you are entitled to claim, it is advisable to look at the information on your rights in case of flight delays or cancellations (also due to overbooking) of Etihad Airways.
For flights of less than 1500 km, the amount is 250 euros. Between 1501 to 3500 km, then it will go up to 400 euros. In case of overbooking on flights over 3500 km, the compensation can be up to 600 euros.
What do I do at the airport if my bag has not arrived on my Etihad Airways flight?
Before leaving the baggage claim area, please proceed to the Lost and Found office. Once at the Lost and Found office, you will be given a Baggage Irregularity Report (BIR) to report the incident, give a description of your baggage and start tracking your bag. Etihad Airways will arrange for the baggage to be sent to the customer within 24 hours if it has not arrived at the terminal. Under normal conditions, most luggage is located and delivered within 72 hours.
It is essential to fill in the form with the written details exactly as they appear on the documentation given to you at the airport. In addition, remember to have the original documentation at hand, also at the time of delivery of your damaged baggage. Along with the completed PIR, also the damaged bag tag, boarding pass and itinerary and a photocopy of your ID card or passport.
If your baggage has been delayed, you should also bear in mind that delivery may be subject to the country's customs conditions and your presence at the airport may be required by the authorities.
