What you can do while waiting.
Flight delays can be very annoying as well as frustrating. If you find yourself in this situation, there are a few things you could do to help ease the frustration. Since you are entitled to some compensation, the best practice is to gather enough proof of the flight delay or cancellation. This can be done by collecting a form stating this from the airline officials. Also ensure to confirm that the reason for the flight delay or cancellation is clearly stated.
Your Rights as an Air-Passenger
According to the European Passenger Air Traffic Regulation, you are entitled to compensation if your flight has been delayed for at least 3 hours or if your flight was cancelled without prior notice of at least 14 days before scheduled departure date. Usually, if there is a 2-hour involuntary waiting period at the airport, the airline must make snacks and drinks available to passengers. The airline is usually responsible for all but exceptional cases of flight delays and cancellations. Exceptional cases such as Bird strikes or storms. The amount payable is totally dependent on the flight distance and not the ticket price.
