What does the airline owe me for a cancelled flight?

Last updated on April 25, 2023

Typically, when a flight is cancelled, the airline owes the traveller reimbursement for the cost of the ticket, which includes the cost of any associated fees or taxes. Additionally, when the cancellation is the airline’s fault, they typically owe travellers 400% of the one-way fare up to a maximum of $1350, when travelling within the United States. This compensation is typically provided by the airline in the form of a travel voucher or cash.
