Claim For Overbooked Flight Compensation

If your plane is overbooked while making a stopover, you should receive a refund of your journey and an airplane back to your home airport. You are also entitled to, not surprisingly, be flown to your final destination as soon as possible. This can even mean flying a different route and with a different airline.

Overbooking often goes right instead of wrong. It is rather advantageous for airlines to continue with the practice. There are enough alternatives in the case of overbooking. Passengers can always be chosen business class. However, don't bet on getting that free upgrade if the flight has been overbooked.

When the aircraft is overbooked, the airline usually asks if you'll find passengers willing to voluntarily give up their seats. They then receive a certain benefit or compensation. If there are not enough volunteers, the airline shall begin refuse its service to the number of passengers that cannot be seated.

If you are not allowed on the flight because it has been overbooked, the airline should grant you financial compensation in accordance with European law.

If you are denied boarding because of an overbooked flight, it's possible you'll qualify for compensation. Your rights continue to be covered if you were flying from the EU or having a European airline! You can check your flight at no cost and then choose to submit your claim with Flights Claim.

In case your flight has been overbooked and too little passengers volunteer to require a later flight, you might end up being denied boarding. If this happens and your new flight gets you there more than one hour after the original flight time, you could be owed compensation.

You have to start your compensation claim without delay, and you should be aware that there are the cutoff dates for claiming it. Within the EU it’s 90 days for anyone who is claiming it with the airline – although, if you wish to claim it through a tour operator, this has to be done within a month of your date of your cancelled flight. Internationally the deadline will depend on the airline.
