On June 22nd, the flight SN515 took-off from Brussels with a 2 hour and 15 minutes’ delay because of a technical problem. The airline had to change its Airbus A330-200 with a A330-300 from Eurowings. This operation was allowed because Brussels Airlines and Eurowings are both subsidiary companies of Lufthansa.

The airplane was scheduled from Brussels to Washington but had to return to its departure 9 hours after take-off. The airline found out the replacement airplane did not have the required FAA documents to be able to fly in the US air territory. One of Star Alliance’s spokesperson told CNN “due to human error, this aircraft was wrongly assigned to the flight to Washington-Dulles. Unfortunately, this was only noticed when the aircraft was already 4 hours away from Brussels”.

Of course, passengers are entitled to a 600€ compensation in respect of the EU261/04 regulations. If you were on this flight, claim now on L8Fligth.com.
