United, Delta, American, Southwest, JetBlue Involuntarily Bumped Passenger Complaints

Lieff Cabraser is investigating widespread complaints by passengers who were involuntarily bumped from ticketed seats on flights by United Airlines, Delta Airlines, American Airlines, Southwest Airlines, or JetBlue Airlines. The law mandates significant compensation for any passengers who are bumped involuntarily from flights, but bumped passengers complain that they are not being properly compensated when they are removed against their will from overbooked flights.

For example, if bumped domestic fliers get to their original destination more than two hours late, airlines are required to pay 400% of the one-way fare, up to a $1,350 limit. There is no requirement that a passenger must affirmatively claim this payment; the payment should be made automatically.
