Air Force Majeure (part 2)

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.

Air Force Majeure (part 1)

Last time we talking about:  Travel tips

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. However, whatever the duration and reason for the delay - technical, meteorological or socio-political - the airline must 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. 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.

Why is this happening?

The most common reason is that the tag that was attached to the suitcase or bag when checking in for a flight came off.
Important! Do not forget to take off all the stickers left over from previous trips, and sign your luggage. Please indicate your name and contact phone numbers in English.

Baggage can be lost and because of a computer failure in the registration or loading systems. It happens that the loader was just mistaken. Quite rare, but almost hopeless case - someone stole your suitcase.

If you are arrested by the police.

In the event of unforeseen contingencies associated with the detention of local law enforcement, threats from other persons, traffic accidents, etc., should promptly report it to the embassy.

If you are the subject of the provocative action by the local police or law enforcement, you should strongly demand that they provide an opportunity to contact the nearest consular office (in your country) or by sending him a written notice of the fact of the incident. During the detention or arrest should offer no resistance, as it may aggravate the situation and provoke the security services/police officers on the use of physical force or weapons.

Do not talk with the representatives of local law enforcement agencies, as well as to sign any protocols and other documents in a foreign language in the absence of the staff of the consular post in the host country, since such evidence under the laws of several countries can be used as the basis for the prosecution of a crime.
