Bill Chromizky and his wife are excited to travel to the path of this summer’s solar eclipse. They book a hotel in advance through Expedia, but when they arrive, they’re told that their reservation had been canceled. The Chromizkys are forced to relocate to a more expensive hotel. Can our advocates bring them some sunshine and reimbursement for their extra expense? “My reserved hotel left me stranded during the eclipse”
After Samantha Gomez is denied boarding on a flight from Philadelphia to Palm Beach, Florida, she asks her airline for compensation. Why won’t it pay? “Bumped from my flight to Palm Beach — why won’t American pay up?”
Jill King-Fernandez and her family voluntarily give up their seats on a Spirit Airlines flight. In exchange, they’re offered flight vouchers. But the vouchers are unusable. Now what? “What is the value of a Spirit Airlines voucher if I can never use it?”
Airline travel can be stressful.
You get to the airport hours before your flight, endure the security checks and then spend time trying to find a seat in the departure terminal.
