- If you're bumped from a flight from the US, the airline should arrange alternative transportation or a refund.
- You have to be given a statement of your rights.
- If you are given compensation, the amount you get depends on the length of the delay and the price of your ticket.
- If being bumped causes you to arrive 1-2 hours late (for domestic flights) and 2-4 hours (for international flights), you should get 200% of your one-way fare – capped at $675.
- If you're delayed by more than 2 hours (4 for international flights), you'll get 400% of your one-way fare (capped at $1350).
- If your ticket was a frequent flyer award or similar, your compensation is based on the lowest payment that other passengers were charged for those tickets.
- To be eligible, you have to have a confirmed reservation and you can't have missed your check-in or broken the airline's rules.
