Default Flight reschedule

Hi all,

Does anyone know the difference (in legal terms) between a rescheduled
flight and a delayed flight? For example, if passengers were entitled
to some sort of compensation if the flight was delayed by x number of
hours, would this entitlement be lost if the flight was rescheduled
instead?

Does anyone know why an airline would make a reschedule if the flight
was delayed?

Many thanks

Kuli

Usually reschedules take place some time prior to the flight and apply
to all the flights from a point on or within a broad time span. In
general there is no compensation but you do have the right to cancel the
whole purchase if the revisions are not acceptable. It would be unusual
to have the two be mixed. This is intended as a practical and not legal
description of the situation

Thanks for the reply.

Here is what happened:
The flight was delayed by about 5 hours so the airline issued a
reschedule 24 hours before departure. However, they kept check-in time
as per the original schedule without informing all passengers of this
fact. The flight was overbooked so some passengers missed the flight
even though they got to the airport 3 hours before departure. I'm
trying to work out from the airline's point of view why did they
reschedule the flight instead of just informing passengers of the
delay. Could it be because they wanted some passengers to cancel so
that they don't have to pay Denied Boarding Compensation?

Thanks

Kuli

What ariline? Did they indicate why they still wanted you to check in
the normal time if the flight was delayed by 5 hours?

Maybe a reschedule doesn't look as bad in the published statistics as a
delay.

Operational restrictions was the execuse! they claim that check-in
desks are only available during those times.
