What's Happening Now

I am an international traveller on a U.S. Airline (Continental Airlines/Micronesia).

Airlines such as Continental Airlines and Continental Micronesia has such a monopoly in certain areas that the Flight Dispatchers routinely authorize flights well beyond the configuration of the aircraft for destinations that are regularly full to capacity.

I believe that if the airlines put themselves in a position to experience an oversale situation then they should be held accountable for their actions. I believe that if the airlines have to resort to soliciting for volunteers, the compensation should be no different from voluntary and in-voluntary denied boarding. The compensation should just be one flat rate between the two categories. This will eliminate airlines from enticing customers to volunteer… more »

…so they don’t have to render a high amount of compensation relative to the inconvienence of the passenger.

Provisions could require that in any instance that an airline authorized a flight to be oversold, they assume all liability for such a decision.

The bottom line should always be the protection and advocacy of the customer. « less
