Do I have legal claim for a compensation if a flight into the EU was delayed or missed due to a connecting flight if the carrier is not EU based?
I have the following case: We flew Qatar-Airways from Colombo to Berlin. However, due to a delay during the first flight to Doha, we missed our connecting flight to Berlin. Consequently, we had to be rebooked and take a detour via Zürich to Berlin. In the end we arrived in Berlin Tegel with a delay of about 5 hours. Are we entitled to 600€ per passenger due to the long delay because of the missed flight? Or are we not since Qatar-Airways is not based in the EU? Thanks!
