How to check a BA flight status?

You can search for a specific flight directly by entering the flight number if you know it. Then you choose whether it’s departing or arriving, and the date.

Is your BA flight delayed or cancelled?
After checking your BA flight status, did you find out it is delayed or even cancelled?
Then you might be eligible for a British Airways flight delay compensation.
Under EU Regulation 261/2004 (EC 261), you could be entitled to up to €600.
The compensation you can get depends on the distance of the flight:
- For flights under 1,500 km, passengers get compensation of €250.
- If the flight distance is between 1,500 and 3,500 km, you can claim €400. This is the maximum you can get for a flight solely inside the EU.
- If the distance is greater than 3,500 km (for example, your flight departed from an EU airport and landed outside Europe), then you could claim up to €600.
It is important to note down the exact departure and arrival time of your flight for that purpose. That’s why checking your BA flight status and details online is a good idea.
