Bumped Off Flight

Bumped Off Flight

If you get involuntarily bumped from a flight, you can get paid out 200-400% of the flight's cost back depending on how late you get to your destination. If this happens to you they will offer you a bunch of vouchers, but be persistent and they will pay you out. If the airline arranges substitute transportation that is scheduled to arrive at your destination between one and two hours after your original arrival time (between one and four hours on international flights), the airline must pay you an amount equal to 200% of your one-way fare to your final destination that day, with a $650 maximum. If the substitute transportation is scheduled to get you to your destination more than two hours later (four hours internationally), or if the airline does not make any substitute travel arrangements for you, the compensation doubles (400% of your one-way fare, $1300 maximum).
