Different regions have different policies for a flight delay claim. However, in most instances, these claim comes from the aviation authority at the airport for delaying the flight and occupying the airport space for longer than the intended time. As far as a passenger concern, there are no specific laws where the airlines have to pay a claim amount to the passenger. In most cases, the passenger can ask for a refund of the ticket amount or to switch the flights. The passenger can learn more about such claims by talking to the airline directly. In some circumstances, a flight delay may result in the passengers to stay longer in a hotel or book a hotel room. In all such cases, the passenger is not liable to pay. The airline will mostly pay for the hotel costs and the meals of the passengers.
