Airlines make mistakes and sometimes those mistakes directly affect you. If your flight has ever been overbooked, you know how stressful it can be on all passengers. Sometimes, the overbooking leaves you without a seat on the plane and you’re left stranded at the airport. Luckily, the airline will do what it can to get you a new flight to the same destination as soon as possible. Even then, you might be late to your final destination leaving you eligible for financial compensation. When flying in the EU, it’s important to know the overbooked flight rights in the EU. Knowing when you’re eligible for financial compensation and what step you need to take to remain eligible will save your skin in these stressful situations.
