Air Force Majeure




Last time we talking about:  When choosing a children's holiday, pay attention ...




Agree, it is better to be prepared for any unpleasant situation. This is especially true for those who travel by air, and is a "hostage" of meteorological and other negative "factors of influence."

Delays, cancellations, and delays in flights, overbooking, damage, and loss of baggage are the most common situations that irritate travelers. What to do? Where to run? To whom to address? It's pretty simple.



Delays


This is the most common type of force majeure, which can make adjustments to the plans of travelers. From half an hour to a couple of dozen hours. However, whatever the duration and reason for the delay - (technical, meteorological or socio-political) - the airline is obliged to provide a certain set of services. Of course, it's free. This includes communication (two phone calls to anywhere in the world and 2 emails) and food/drinks during the period of forced waiting. The situation with food is as follows. The time of arrival of your breakfast/lunch/dinner is regulated and depends on the distance of the delayed flight. So, passengers of short flights (up to 1500 km) begin to feed after 2 hours, if the range is medium (from 1500 to 3500 km) - at least after 3, and for passengers of long-haul flights (more than 3500 km), food arrives in 4 hours.

Overbooking
Or the excess of armor. This means that the seats on the plane were less than those sold on this flight tickets. Accordingly, one of the passengers will have to stay "overboard". This type of force majeure happens, as a rule, in the high season - the demand is huge, but it is always possible that one of the passengers will not be on the flight. Overbooking is a kind of insurance against "negligent" customers, which international booking systems automatically provide to all carriers. Airlines are trying their best to minimize the number of resale tickets because every "superfluous" passenger will have to be comforted. Under the full program. It includes several options for rerouting (the offended passenger chooses the most convenient) and compensation in the range of 200 to 600 euros, again, depending on the distance of the flight. Not a bad amount, agree! Therefore, there are passengers who consciously try to increase their chances ... not to fit into the plane - for example, after appearing for registration at the last moment.

"Immunity" from overbooking are business class passengers, elderly people, and passengers with special needs, families with children and unaccompanied children, as well as travelers who register for the flight in advance online.

Agree, it is better to be prepared for any unpleasant situation. This is true for those who travel by air.
Delays, cancellations, and delays in flights, overbooking, damage and loss of luggage are, perhaps, the most common passenger "joys", sometimes overshadowing a perfectly planned trip. What to do? Where to run? To whom to address? It's pretty simple.

This is perhaps the most common type of force majeure, which can make adjustments to the plans of travelers - from half an hour to a couple of dozen hours.

This includes communication (two phone calls to anywhere in the world and 2 emails) and food/drinks during the period of forced waiting. If the flight is delayed more than 5 hours or is postponed the next day, the airline's obligations are added to the accommodation of

passengers at the hotel and provision of a transfer to the hotel and back to the airport.
