Last time we talking about : Air Force Majeure (part 1)
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.
