Passengers on board an Air Canada flight back in 2010 were ordered to disembark moments before its scheduled departure, due to the discovery of a giant rat aboard the flight. The rodent was spotted in the overhead locker by a passenger while loading their luggage in preparation for the flight.
In early August 2013 Virgin Australia notified its passengers that some flight delays and cancellations were to be expected, as the airline’s booking system had experienced a global shut-down.
If you’ve recently travelled on an EU regulated flight which was delayed for over three hours, you may be eligible for compensation, from 200 to 500 GBP. If you want to make a claim for compensation be sure to read these tips.
It goes without saying that if you experience a flight delay or if you get your flight cancelled, it is the responsibility of the airline to look after you. ‘Looking after you’ can include providing you with refreshments such as food and/or drinks as well as adequate communications. If your flight gets delayed for more than a day or even overnight, the airline will be responsible to transport you to and from the airport so that you can go home and come back if that is what you wish to do.
Unfortunately airlines do oversell seats. This may seem totally unfair to us passengers but it is a way for them to ensure that all seats are full at all times. There are always people that will not show, leaving empty spaces on the flight and by being able to fill these up, the airline is actually able to keep its costs down, which, in return, gives us lower fares.

All types of travel are fraught with problems these days, it doesn’t matter whether you venture out by train, boat or plane: things can go wrong. Just the pure volume of traffic and the amount of people moving around from place A to place B is a recipe for problems. However, if you are prepared and know what types of things to expect and to look out for, then your travel plans needn’t go completely awry.
If you should take the time to ask the most frequent fliers “do you think flying is the same as it once was?” you will see that many, of them, if not all of them, say that it’s not. The travel industry has been hit with heavy security measures, strict baggage guidelines, increased flight delays and cancellation after cancellation
There are a lot of reasons why a flight may be delayed or cancelled, and not all of them are to do with the weather. Sometimes there are computer crashes, faulty equipment, or untrained staff that may make your journey a nightmare. Either way, you need to be prepared for this mishap beforehand. You should also learn how to cope with a flight delay, and minimise the stress of the situation as much as possible.
