RJ Cancellation Compesation

Booked a BA award using avios on RJ AMM-CAI and it was canceled day before and rebooked for 5 hrs later. Is it possible to get any sort of compensation for this? Thanks in advance.

Compensation? You're probably hoping for EU261, but this is based upon the operating carrier, and as RJ is not an EU Community carrier, there is no obligation under EU261, irrespective that it was a BA plated ticket.

Unless there is a provision for compensation in RJ's conditions of carriage or contract terms (I've not looked, bit it is unlikely) your best bet would probably be your travel insurance.

Exactly.

For denied boarding due to oversales/ long delays RJ gives 70USD (unless ofcourse if this happens ex EU, where the normal EU261 rules apply).

What a joke. Let us hope my flight ex BKK doesn't get delayed or I get IDB'ed haha (the latter would be the first time for me and I would certainly expect a much higher compensation than 70 USD)

You should be able to get a full refund, though.
