If you have been in such a situation, this article will help you to figure out if you qualify to ask for compensation.
How Much Can I Claim in Compensation For my Delayed Flight? 

The compensation for a flight delay range between 
• €250 and €600 per passenger. How much you will be compensated depends on the distance of the journey, as follows€250 for flights shorter than 1500 km.
• €400 for flights between 1500 km and 3500 km. If your flight took off and arrived in the EU, this is the amount of compensation even for flights over 3500 km.
