Air Passenger Rights and Flight Compensation

Because Qatar Airways has its headquarters within the EU, almost all the flights they offer are protected by EC 261, one of the world's most comprehensive air passenger rights laws. Additionally, you may be covered by the equivalent UK passenger rights law, so called "UK 261", depending on the flight.

The EC 261 regulation gives passengers the right to claim for compensation when they have suffered delayed, cancelled or overbooked flights, which are no fault of their own. Passengers are also entitled to claim for past flights — often you can still claim for flights in the past 3 years.
