  1. If the flight from PHL to VCE was operated by a European Union based carrier, and the cancellation was caused by a non-extraordinary circumstance such as a mechanical issue, crew issue, etc., you would be entitled to 600 Euro each per EU261 from the airline. If it was a US carrier flying to the EU, no compensation is mandated. If the flight was from an airport in the EU it would make no difference where the carrier was based and compensation from the airline would be based on EU261.

  3. Mr Parsely; From the opinions expressed in your past posts, I think you would prefer a William Zantzinger type of response to perceived poor service. OK, I really only find you mildly entertaining.
  4. Yes, I understand from your reply that you, astonishingly, do equate poor service to criminal behavior. Would you like to have the perpetrators arrested for poor service? Also, I have done my own research, and can only conclude that, you, obviously can not name any countries that reward criminals for their crimes. Anyway, you are very entertaining.
  5. Just relax and print your boarding passes at the Hilton. They are very accommodating. Free shuttle to and from Rome, on a 2 hour schedule. You’re really not going to save that much time getting luggage tags ahead of time.
  6. I’m not sure.I understand this rant. Are you saying Poor Service = Criminal Behavior What countries reward criminals for their crimes?
  7. In addition to a refund or rescheduled flight, did they get the compensation that they were entitled to per EU261? 600 EURO each per flight
  8. Afterthought...…………… The original point I was trying to make is, through this whole ordeal, I was never contacted by Viking Air. I am disappointed that I was never contacted by them after the trip either, to advise me that I was probably entitled to compensation from the airline. The EU261 compensation is so common that BA actually has a link to it on their website. I believe there are other carriers who also have a link to a claim form.
  9. Of course, whether you want to file a claim or not is completely up to you. I only wanted to let you, and anyone else on this board with a similar circumstance, know that you may possibly have this option. By the way, I share your opinion about BA
  10. If your flight was delayed or cancelled due to mechanical or operational issues, there is a very good chance that you are entitled to compensation under the provisions of EC261. You probably have at least 5 years to make this claim from the date of the flight. If you still have copies of boarding passes, flight itinerary, etc. it should be easy to file a claim.
  11. Some time ago we were supposed to fly home from Paris (CDG) to Atlanta. Upon arriving at CDG we were advised that our flight to Atlanta had been cancelled due to a mechanical problem. They tried to find us alternate flights, but could not find anything that would get us home that day. So they booked us on the same flight for the next day, put us up in a hotel far from Paris and the airport, gave us a meal voucher, and drop off and pick up from the hotel. During this time I heard nothing or received any notifications from Viking Air (we had Viking Air Plus) We arrived home a day late. I did remember reading about EU261 some time ago, and an internet search gave me all the details. We made a claim to the airline, and eventually received nearly $1400 ($700 each) due to this cancellation/delay, which was classified as a non-extraordinary event. I now urge anyone I know flying to Europe with a European carrier, or flying back from Europe with ANY carrier, to familiarize themselves with this regulation for delays or cancellations.
  12. Just wondering if it was a delay that would have entitled you to compensation pursuant to EU 261. Aldo wondering if Viking Air mentioned that you may have a claim against BA
  13. What was the reason given for your BA flight delay?
  14. Please don’t take the “Critic” out of Cruise Critic. Of course criticism should always be done in a civil manner.
  15. I prefer flying a European carrier from the US on flights to Europe, and getting the extra protection that EU261 gives me on that leg of the trip.
