    Freebird flight delay compensation 2nd Oct 17 at 6:55 PM
    Hi All,

    Just after a bit of advice. We were delayed 4 hours with freebird going from Manchester to Bodrum. I sent them a letter and offered us €250 as a straight away payment and if we wanted more it would have to go through the directors and accounts etc. Has anyone dealt with this before? I don't know if we should accept the 250 or push for more?

    Thanks in advance

    As Freebird are a Turkish registered airline and are not regulated in the EU I would accept their offer and run

    But ultimately it is your decision.

    Yes, but the op would face a very difficult task to sue them, I just feel this one is, as the old saying goes, a bird in the hand. No waiting, no hassle and as much € as the op would get from a NWNF Co.

    Just my opinion.
