Virgin Atlantic flight delay compensation claims

History

Founded in 1984 by businessman Richard Branson, best known at the time for being the head of Virgin Records, Virgin Atlantic Airlines began operating just three months after Branson announced his intention to move into the travel business. Known for the high quality of its services, Virgin Atlantic was the first airline to offer individual television sets to passengers travelling business class.

The company has a current fleet of 45 aircraft and flies to 33 destinations, most of which are in North America, Africa, the Middle East, Asia and the Caribbean. Most Virgin Atlantic flights depart from Heathrow or Gatwick, but the company has a secondary base in Manchester and occasionally operates flights out of Belfast and Glasgow.

In 2016, the company operated 21,883 flights carrying a total of 5.4 million passengers. Virgin Atlantic has a better than average record for sticking to the schedules times of its flights with 79% arriving on time. Flight Delay Compensation regulations apply to all Virgin Atlantic flights, regardless of whether they are leaving the UK or arriving here.

Virgin Atlantic flight delay compensation

Virgin Atlantic flight claims are often paid quickly with little in the way of challenges. The attitude of the company seems to be that making such payments is something of a nuisance, but necessary. That said, there have been times when Virgin Atlantic cancellation compensation claims or Virgin Atlantic flight claims have become a little stuck, and the company required a little nudging in order to take action. In particular, we have had a number of successful cases in which Virgin Atlantic compensation was not paid until the company became aware that FairPlane had become involved in the case. At that point, the outstanding Virgin Atlantic flight compensation was paid immediately.
