What should you do if your flight is cancelled?
When you travel by plane, you run the risk of your flight being canceled or delayed.
Tomasz Paëliszyn, a travel expert shares the essential steps to take when your flight is cancelled.
How to find out if your flight is delayed or cancelled
Airlines will often notify you of delays and cancellations by email, text, if you provide the correct contact information when booking.
The first thing you should do when you find out that your flight has been canceled is to contact the airline.
Pawliszyn recommends calling while in line at the airport's customer service desk. But his biggest tip is to try to get booked on another flight right away, even if it's with a different airline.
Henderson suggests taking it further by reaching out to the airline on social media.
Henderson added that it is important to remember that if an airline cancels your flight, you are legally entitled to a full refund, which includes the ticket price, taxes, baggage fees, surcharges and ancillary fees.
Passengers should receive that refund within seven working days if they paid by credit card and within 20 days if they paid by cash.
