The BA flight was on time. It was the QR one that was held up. The plane had mechanical issues, as I think is being widely reported with QR’s A380 fleet…

Just to pick up JDB on your point about the return. I’ve got a slightly odd route coming up, Oman Air MCT-FRA then connecting to LH back into the UK.

Surely if the Oman Air flight is late and I miss the connection then I won’t be able to claim?

The pax will need to apply to QR for compensation as the operating carrier of the delayed flight and by all accounts they aren’t too cooperative in these circumstances.

In respect of your trip via MCT, you should in theory be covered as the last leg is from the EU and on an EU carrier, albeit your journey started in a third country and on a third country carrier. You should expect a lot of buck passing.
