Passengers should be aware that airlines do not guarantee their timetables when making travel arrangements. Although airlines strive to deliver passengers to their destinations on time, a number of factors can delay flights. Many challenges, such as inclement weather, air traffic delays, and technical problems, are difficult to anticipate and frequently out of the airlines’ control. Fans are upset.
Airlines are not compelled to provide compensation to passengers in the US when a flight is delayed or canceled. U.S. law only mandates compensation when specific passengers are “bumped” from an overbooked flight.
Only flights that travel to, from, or within the United States are subject to the Department’s regulations on flight delays and cancellations. The laws of another country outside the US may provide protection against aircraft delays and cancellations for travelers traveling between or within other countries. Check with your airline about specific terms and conditions.
