7 Times Your Airline Likely Owes You Money

Reader's Digest Logo By Juliana LaBianca of Reader's Digest | Slide 1 of 8: You’ve been otherwise inconvenienced<p>Tons of things can go wrong when you travel by air, and the airline won’t necessarily volunteer how much you’re owed—and you might not be entitled to anything. But airlines know they’re in the customer service business, so ask about being compensated for your inconvenience. One especially effective method: Tweet your problem. Many airlines respond to complaints posted in a public forum; others may respond only to those placed through their stated preferred method of communication, which may be a feedback form or a telephone call. Give it a try before you give up.</p>

If something goes wrong with your flight, your carrier might be legally required to compensate you.
