Enforcement of Regulation 261/2004 and untransferable compensation claims. A blog about Court of Oost Brabant of 28 June 2018, ECLI:NL:RBOBR:2018:3169

Perhaps you call the airline and ask for compensation. You are told to fill out a web form on the airline’s website. After weeks of silence, you call again.
