Finnair: If your Finnair is delayed, cancelled or overbooked, here is what you should do.
One of the oldest and safest airlines in the world, Finnair is majority owned by the Finnish Government, During the second World War the airline played an important part in evacuating Finnish children to Sweden during the winter war of 1939/1940. Finnair operates services from its Helsinki hub to 110 countries across 2 continents.
Common reasons Finnair give to try and avoid paying compensation:
Blaming extraordinary circumstances - there are not many things that constitute these but the airlines will try it anyway. That is where we come in at flight-delayed.
Send cheques to the wrong address
In many cases an airline will provide vouchers for food and drink, which the passenger is entitled too; but it is also common, for passengers to be offered a new flight or vouchers to the value of the original flight. If accepted, passengers will sign to agree and in doing so, they waive their right to compensation. Which is quite often more than the cost of the flight.
What you need to do:
Keep a copy of your e-ticket/booking confirmation
Note your flight number.
Attempt to find out the reason for your delay. If for example, a conflict has broken out at your destination of choice, then there wouldn't be compensation, but we will ALWAYS validate your claim before proceeding because that is what we are here for.
