Monarch flight delay compensation
Monarch began by refusing to pay any flight delay compensation however, after we had issued a large number of legal proceedings against them, they contacted us with the aim to put in place an arrangement to streamline all Monarch Flight Delay Compensation claims. We now send them a list of all passengers who contact us to make a Monarch Airline Delay Compensation claim and check all Flight Delay Compensation claims we submit within a strict 14 day deadline. They then make us a bulk payment of all claims we make or provide full details of why the Airline Delay Compensation claim is not payable. We carefully check any excuses given and respond accordingly.
Although Monarch have a poorer than average flight delay record, they are now efficient in dealing with flight delay claims and act reasonably.
