Rearranging disability assistance, meals and seat choices
We’ll automatically rearrange any disability and mobility assistance requests if your flight is delayed or rebooked following a cancellation.
We try and serve all ordered and special meals on rebooked flights – although we might not be able to if a rebooked flight departs within 24 hours of your original departure.
We also do our best to transfer seat choices over to rebooked flights. This isn't always possible but we'll provide you with a close alternative where we can.
You can apply for a refund if we’re unable to provide your meal choice or you’re unhappy with an alternative seat selection.
You can apply for a refund if you paid for Wi-Fi and it didn’t work during your flight. We’re also able to provide you with a receipt if you need one.
Go to our complaints and claims portal to make a Wi-Fi claim or request a receipt.
