Overbooked Flights

Overbooked Flights Compensation – Are you eligible to claim?

Overbooking at airlines is a common practice. This is the airlines way of financially protecting themselves in the event a passenger doesn’t show up or cancels at the last minute. From time to time, however, this process sometimes comes to bite them when all passengers show up. So what happens when there are too many passengers and not enough seats for a flight?

When this occurs, some passengers are going to get bumped from the flight. If you find that you are on one of the many overbooked flights, you may be entitled to a form of overbooked flight compensation. The first step is to determining if you are entitled to file an overbooked flights claim with your airline. It is important to note that even though you have officially filed this claim, it could still take some time until you received your compensation.

This is because many airlines never want to admit fault. They may claim that the overbooking was caused by extraordinary circumstances which were out of their control and therefore they do not need to pay compensation. This is where we can help. Our team of specialist claim handlers will fight your case with your airline and will handle all challenges they put forward using specialist industry knowledge. We can even take your airline to court as part of our no win no fee service if a settlement is not reached to ensure you receive the overbooked flights compensation you are legally entitled to.

What Forms of Overbooked Flights Compensation Are There?

When you find yourself on an overbooked flight and get bumped, there are a few things you can be compensated for. First of all the airline is obligated to do all that they can to find an alternative flight for you. IN addition to this they are required to provide you with food, beverages, and even a hotel room stays if your wait time goes into the overnight hours. Additionally, if you do not receive another alternative flight you may also be entitled to receive a refund of your plane ticket. If your delay has lasted for 3 hours or more you are also eligible to claim overbooked flights compensation of up to €6oo for each and every affected passenger on the flight in question.
