Flightright Press Area

Welcome to the press area of Flightright, the portal for air passenger rights and consumer protection. Here you can find contact details for our press representatives as well as an overview of our experts who are available for interview. You can also access our press releases and press material. We would be happy to provide you with data, facts and consumer tips on air travel.
As the market-leading air passenger rights portal, we represent consumers against airlines in matters concerning flight problems such as delays, cancellations and denied boarding. We apply the UK’s Air Passenger Rights and Air Travel Organisers’ Licensing (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations, and represent passengers before court to enforce their compensation and ticket refund claims. In total, we have already recovered more than 500 million euros in compensation on behalf of our customers. Flightright was founded in 2010 by Dr. Philipp Kadelbach and Dr. Sven Bode and is now led by Managing Director Dr. Jan-Frederik Arnold.

Cancellations, strikes and delays in 2022

The year 2022 was marked by flight chaos. This was the result of massive planning errors made by airlines and airports during the Corona pandemic and in the months that followed. Flights were cancelled en masse, particularly by British Airways, Wizz Air, and TUI, while strikes, delays, and missing luggage also threw holiday plans into disarray. . Rightfully upset, many travellers sought help from Flightright. We predict a similar situation again this year with many cancellations and delays, especially over the summer holidays.

Flightright Experts for your Interview

Oskar-de-FeliceOskar de FeliceHead of Flightright’s legal department and air passenger rights expert

Oskar de Felice has experience in front of the camera and has given interviews to many major media outlets such as Der Spiegel, FAZ and RTL. He gets to the heart of legal issues in aviation law in a clear and understandable manner.

“Although airlines such as Lufthansa might attempt to argue otherwise, internal airline strikes are not an extraordinary circumstance and air passengers can claim compensation of between 250 to 600 euros for last minute cancellations and long delays.”

Claudia-BroscheClaudia BroscheAir passenger rights expert and qualified lawyer

Claudia Brosche has regularly appeared before the media, particularly during the chaotic summer of 2022. Whether it be on the television, radio or in print, anyone who has looked into the topic of air passenger’s rights is likely to have encountered a quote from Claudia. She explains complicated legal issues in a way that all consumers can understand.

“Since as far back as the Corona period, and despite receiving massive state support, Lufthansa has presented itself as an airline that vehemently refuses to pay.”
“The fact that many airlines are still difficult to reach electronically in the digital age is unacceptable to air passengers.”
