I was traveling from JFK to Warsaw, with a connecting flight in Paris last week. My flight was originally 710PM and was delayed until after 9, because of this I missed my connecting flight in Paris. We were supposed to land at 835 and my flight was at 945. Instead, we landed at 915 and the stewards said it was impossible to make the plane even when I told them I had a connecting flight as soon as I found out we had a delay. I went immediately to customer service at 930, and they changed my ticket to a flight at 720 pm. I had sat at the airport all day with a lousy food voucher and they said they ran out of free calling cards and I could call collect from the airport. After reading about air rights from the Eu page, i would like to know what i am able to be compensated for? Because I was delayed my flight did not arrive in Warsaw until 945 and I had a train at 1020 to my family's home, and got there at 530 am Wednesday morning because there were no more express trains at that time. I came to visit my sick grandmother who had been hospitalized and I bought this ticket just a few days before my departure and it cut a whole day off of my trip.
Any advice? Greatly appreciated.
