Lufthansa flight delay compensation claims

History

Lufthansa can trace its history back to 1926 when, based in Berlin, it was the national carrier of Germany. The company went into liquidation shortly after the Second World War, but the trademark was revived in 1953 and has been in operation ever since. In 2017, Lufthansa was the largest airline in Europe, both in terms of the size of its fleet and the number of passengers carried.

The company operates a fleet of 302 aircraft which fly to a total of 220 destinations. Headquartered in Cologne, the company has its primary hub at Frankfurt airport and a secondary hub at Munich airport.  Lufthansa also operates a number of subsidiaries including Sun Express Germanwings, Swiss International Airlines and Austrian Airlines.

Lufthansa flight delays

Lufthansa’s record on flight delays is significantly better than most with an average delay time of 10.33 minutes. This statistic ranks them as 11th out of the 35 main airlines operating in and out of the UK.

During 2016, almost 80% of all Lufthansa flights arrived within 15 minutes of schedule. Around 2.3% of flights were delayed by more than an hour while just 0.14% of flights suffered delays more than three hours.

Lufthansa flight delay compensation

Lufthansa is part of a very large organisation and has significant resources behind it. Therefore, this is a likely contributing factor to the fact that Lufthansa flight claims submitted by FairPlane are dealt with in an extremely efficient manner.

Although there have in the past been a handful of occasions where we have had to issue legal proceedings against the company in Germany to encourage them to reply to our Lufthansa flight compensation correspondence, the company has since cleaned up its act. We now believe that when a Lufthansa compensation claim arrives from FairPlane, the correspondence is moved to the top of the pile, allowing our clients to receive their Lufthansa cancellation compensation or flight compensation as quickly as possible.
