Can You File a Lawsuit Against an Airline?

Article provided by

People are starting to travel more these days and every now and then, things will really go wrong on a flight. Of course, it’s not uncommon for the airline to lose your luggage. Travel attorneys say that consumers can usually get a $3,000 reimbursement for lost luggage even if they don’t have a receipt. Hopefully, there was nothing in your bags that was irreplaceable.

In some cases, passengers booked their flights and paid for their tickets only to find out that the airline had cancelled the flight for one reason or another. This has been happening more in the last 18 months. You can file a lawsuit in small claims court in the city where you live but there is a limit on the amount you can recover. You may be able to recover damages above the price of the ticket if you lost wages or had extra expenses because of the cancellation. Be sure and save all receipts.

Another way to make your voice heard is by filing a complaint on sites like Trip Advisor for Travel, the Better Business Bureau and Revdex is an online business directory. Revdex is trying to improve the relationship between consumers and businesses. They provide consumers with an opportunity to browse and post negative complaints and reviews about businesses.

File reports against hotels, travel agents, airlines or restaurants. You can also file a complaint against any company you feel has cheated or deceived you. File scam reports about online business or file complaints about a social media scam.
