NOW BOARDING: DELAY COMPENSATION

The Biden administration intends to propose regulations mandating airlines to provide monetary compensation to passengers in cases of flight cancellations or significant delays for which the airline is accountable.

What do airlines currently have in place? Although federal regulations mandate refunds for canceled flights, major airlines do not provide additional compensation for the inconvenience. JetBlue and Alaska Airlines are currently the only airlines that offer compensation beyond a refund, which is provided in the form of frequent flyer miles or vouchers.

Why is it needed? Air travel complaints have increased fourfold in recent years, primarily due to refund-related issues reported by passengers. The Department of Transportation (DOT) has attributed nearly 80% of flight cancellations during the first half of 2022 to airline mismanagement, such as crew shortages, aircraft maintenance, or delayed arrivals. The Biden administration’s proposed regulations would require additional compensation in situations that merit it, in addition to a refund.

For now at least… Airlines, with the exception of Frontier, voluntarily began covering the costs of meals, transportation, and lodging during flight disruptions after the challenging travel season last summer
