Have you ever been kicked off a flight from overbooking?

Jump to last reply

I bought my tickets a few months before the flight. It had 4 flights for the trip. I was able to get seats for 3 of the 4 flights. (The flight with no seat was on my return flight coming home from Amsterdam.)

When I tried to get a seat for the fight with no assigned seat, the airlines said I will get the seat assigned when I take that flight 10 days later. The day of that filight I was at the airport 3 hours early. Upon check in, the airlines informed me I was flying standby. I preotested saying I had bought my tickets 2-1/2 months ago and I was not standby. They said the flight was overbooked and I did not have a seat and I could only fly if a seat opened up.

This ever happent to you? I used Delta.
