Have you used AirHelp?

This incredible app lets air travelers file claims quickly and easily for delayed, canceled or overbooked flights.

Founded in 2013, the founders say their “goal is to make claiming compensation as easy and seamless as possible for you. We believe this can be achieved by data and cutting edge technology presented with a user-friendly website and intuitive mobile apps.”

Wow, so instead of fighting through an airline’s customer service, you can whip up the app and file a grievance there.

The app also lets you check the status of your flight. It’s free and available on iOS and Android.

Additionally, AirHelp has released a handy chart scoring airlines on “how an airline will treat you, when flights get delayed, cancelled or overbooked. The higher the score, the more likely an airline is to get your destination on time and to treat you well if for some reason they do not.”


See the facts below on the top (none are U.S.-based) and bottom performers (U.S. Airways), as well as stats on major U.S. carriers. It might help you decide which airline to book holiday travel with if you haven’t already done so. And BTW, you should really get on that.
