Airlines to Pay More for Passengers Who Miss Flights

The Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) is proposing that the compensation that airline passengers are given when they miss a flight due to airline practices of overbooking should be increased.  These passengers are missing their flights through the fault of the airline, not their own, and they should receive more money for that.  The current rates, set in the 1970s according to CAB executive director Carmelo Arcilla, are P300 for domestic flights and P500 for international flights.

The CAB is looking to have these rates raised by ten times, making compensation as much as P3000 for domestic flights and P5000 for international flights.  Overbooking flights is standard practice now, with airlines counting on a certain number of passengers to not make their flight on time.  However, many times too many passengers show up and some have to be turned away.  They are charged airline fees and rebooked on the next available flight.
