    DOT Raises Denied Boarding Compensation

    The Department of Transportation increases compensation for passengers involuntary bumped from overbooked flights. The ruling came amid fierce opposition from air carriers.

    Under the new DOT rule, airlines will compensate passengers who are involuntary bumped due to overbooking as follows:

    • Passengers who are involuntarily bumped and arrive up to 59 minutes late are not entitled to compensation.
    • one to two hours late: are entitled to the lesser of $400 or 100 percent of the price of your one-way ticket
    • two or more hours late : the lesser of $800 or 200 percent of the price of your one-way ticket.

    Compensation payments are in addition to the value of your ticket, which you can apply toward alternate transportation or have it refunded.

    DOT said it also would make the rules applicable to aircraft that seat between 30 and 60 people, which previously had been exempt from the denied boarding standards.

    According to DOT figures, denied boardings steadily have increased since 2001, reaching a record high in 2007 of 1.12 for every 10,000 passengers. President George W. Bush last year proposed to raise denied boarding compensation caused by airline oversales following mounting public outcry over airline service

    DOT also announced the opening of additional airspace for pilots to fly around bad weather on west-bound flights out of New York, an area that accounts for much of the nation’s air travel delays.
