Can I claim my flight delay directly to Norwegian?
First, if you want to claim directly to Norwegian, you should know your chances are very small, since very often Norwegian tries to justify their delayed flights with extraordinary circumstances that did not really happen, such as issues with air traffic control. Therefore, it is highly recommendable to funnel your claim through lexority.

Time Limit: 2 to 5 years as a general rule, contingent on the type of regulation that is fit in each case.
- Montreal Convention: 2 years

Some advice to claim Norwegian
Do not accept any offer from Norwegian
Don´t accept any offer from Norwegian that doesn’t match what the Regulations imposes. Read above to check the compensation you are legally entitled to.
Norwegian delayed flights for 3 or more hours
Norwegian delay must be higher than 3 hours to be granted a compensation.
Norwegian overbooking: is it legal?
Overbooked Norwegian flight: When Norwegian sells more tickets than the possible number of passengers they can take.
The overbooking is legal, but you are entitled to a compensation up to € 600.
Norwegian aims to avoid empty seats because of no-shows, but this must be legally sanctioned.
When the Norwegian passenger has received a reservation or any document stating the payment has been accepted and registered, it is a “confirmed reservation”. Boarding denials happen when a passenger presents to the gate but Norwegian refuses them access to the plane.
How do I know how long was Norwegian flight delayed?
- Have a Lexority specialist to tell you how long the Norwegian flight has been delayed without a doubt. Take in to account that the following tools are not always accurate and need a payment record.
- You can use the web http://www.flightstats.com/ where if you register you can see the Norwegian status of all flights including those of years ago.
- Another option is entering to Flight Radar where you can see the last 7 days Norwegian flight delays without registering. After registration you can also see delayed flights from up to two years ago.
Note: When the Norwegian delay is very close to 3 hours, Flightradar24 is not 100% accurate, since it shows the time of landing, but not the exit from the plane, which is what the regulations imposes has to be taken in consideration.
