If you recently experienced a delayed, canceled, or overbooked flight, you may be eligible for compensation. However, the laws differ quite a bit based on where you’re flying. Here’s a breakdown:
If you’re flying within the US
Flights within the US are only eligible for compensation if they are overbooked, you then are denied boarding, and the rerouted flight they put you on gets you to your destination one hour late or more.
If you’re flying to or from Europe
Flights to or from Europe are eligible for compensation if they are delayed, canceled, or overbooked due to a situation they could control. Situations that the airlines couldn’t control (such as a weather event) are exempt from compensation.
