American Airlines Flight Cancellation Compensation
Regardless of whether you're at home or abroad when you find out about your American Airlines flight cancellation, you're going to have a lot of questions and concerns. The first thing to know is that American Airlines should find you a new flight, or offer you a full refund.
But because flight cancellations almost always play havoc with your travel plans, you should check whether you're also entitled to claim American Airlines cancelled flight compensation to help make up for the disruption.
Under UK and EU regulations, American Airlines should pay passengers up to €600 per person when they cancel flights at late notice — that is, any flight cancellation less than 14 days before it was due to depart.
American Airlines will not have to pay compensation if they were able to offer a replacement flight with similar departure and arrival times to the original. You can check the exact requirements on our flight cancellation compensation page.
Airlines also don't have to pay compensation if extraordinary circumstances were at play. That means that if an unusual situation occurred that was outside of the airline's control but forced a cancellation, there's no American Airlines flight cancellation compensation owed. Typical examples include bad weather or a strike by air traffic control.

American Airlines Flight Delay Compensation
Whenever you're kept waiting by American Airlines flight delays, it's worth checking whether you're entitled to compensation for your time. If American Airlines is responsible for the delay, both UK and EU regulations say that passengers are owed up to €600 per person when they're delayed by 3 hours or more.
When you're claiming flight delay compensation, American Airlines will check what time the flight arrived at the final destination.

AirHelp owns one of the most comprehensive databases of flight stats available, so we can always back up American Airlines flight delay compensation claims with the exact delay time.

Air Passenger Rights and Flight Compensation
Europe's air passenger rights, EC 261, are among the most comprehensive in the world. They are designed to ensure airlines like American Airlines take appropriate care of their passengers and compensate passengers fairly when their journeys are disrupted by flight delays, cancellations, or overbookings.
All passengers on a flight departing from a European airport are covered by EC 261. However, as American Airlines is not a European airline, they do not need to pay EC 261 compensation when they are flying outside of Europe, or even on flights to Europe if the departure airport is outside the EU.
Which American Airlines Flights are Covered by EC 261?
|Covered by EC 261|
|Flights departing EU airports||✔️ Yes|
|Flights arriving at EU airports||❌ No|
