Can the airline reduce the amount of compensation?
In some cases the airline is allowed to reduce the compensation by 50%. But this happens only if you were offered re-routing and the arrival time at the final destination did not exceed the scheduled arrival time of the flight originally booked:
- by 2 hrs in case of flights up to 1500 km
- by 3 hrs in case of flights between 1500 – 3500 km
- by 4 hrs in case of flights over 3500 km.
