Have You Been Bumped From Your Seat by the Airlines?

Airlines in the U.S. bumped more than 40,000 passengers from their seats last year, NOT counting those who volunteered to give up their seats. Airlines can offer deals to volunteers to give up their seats, however when there are not enough volunteers, the Airlines can demand a passenger give up a seat.

If the Airline requires a passenger to give up their seat, the Federal Rules require the Airline to provide notice of compensation to the passenger AND must pay compensation of double the passenger’s one-way fare up to $675, if the passenger can be placed on another flight that arrives 1 to 2 hours later than the first flight, or 4 times the ticket price, up to $1,350, for longer delays.

Please contact us if you were a passenger who was forced to give up their seat.
