In case of overbooking the airlines have to ask for volunteers that would be willing to give up their reservations for certain benefits. The volunteers have to choose between a full refund of the ticket price and a change of reservation.
If you decide for a full refund of the ticket price, you get additionally compensation of between 250 and 600 €.
If you decide for a change of reservation, you should in addition to the financial compensation receive assistance during the waiting time, including meals, telephone calls, hotel accommodation (for one or more nights, if necessary) and hotel transfers.
For international flights, it is recommended to arrive at airport two hours before the scheduled departure of your flight.
For domestic flights this duration is one hour.
