  • You arrive, but your luggage doesn’t
    Stay calm, most luggage eventually shows up. But if your bag is gone forever, you’ll have to make a claim with the airline to received up to $3,300 per lost bag.
  • You’re stuck on the tarmac
    Airlines are not allowed to keep flights on the tarmac for more than three hours, and they are required to provide food, drinking water, functioning bathrooms and any needed medical attention for delays longer than two hours.
  • You are bumped from your flight
    Airlines owe you cash for bumping you from an overbooked, too-full flight. Even passengers subjected to short delays are eligible for compensation equal to double the price of their ticket, up to $650. Those subject to longer delays should receive payments of four times the value of their tickets, up to $1,300.
