What happens to connecting flights when delayed?

Last updated on April 24, 2023

When a connecting flight is delayed, it can have significant impacts on other people's flights. Passengers may be forced to wait in the airport for hours or even pay for a hotel room if the delay is too long. Airlines may rebook passengers onto other flights, though this can sometimes mean no seat availability. Airlines may also provide vouchers for connecting flights to cover any additional costs. Depending on the airline, compensation may be available for food and hotel accommodations.
