Lufthansa flight delayed- what compensation can you expect?
When compensation for a flight is said to be a delayed flight, this does not mean the time of the delayed departure, but rather the late arrival at the destination airport. A machine can thus catch up with the delay during takeoff during flight by, for example, faster airspeed but also taking advantage of favorable winds. Legally in the sense of the EU Passenger Rights Regulation 261-2004 the delayed arrival by opening the door of the aircraft at the airport is used as the time, so an airplane, which is on the runway in the sense of EU Regulation 261-2004 actually not yet landed but is considered landed only when the doors are open and the passengers can leave the machine. Incidentally, in the case of delays the compensation is not a combination of flight distance and duration of the delay, but it is always 3 hours, regardless of the flight distance.
