In Canada and USA, airlines are required to compensate passengers for certain types of flight disruptions, such as delays, cancellations, and denied boarding. The specific compensation that passengers are entitled to depends on the circumstances of the disruption.
For example, if a passenger is denied boarding due to an overbooking situation, the airline must provide compensation equal to 200% of the one-way fare, up to a maximum of $ 800, if the passenger arrives at their final destination more than two hours late. If the arrival is delayed by less than two hours, the compensation is reduced to 125% of the one-way fare, up to a maximum of $ 500.
If a flight is canceled, passengers are entitled to either a refund of the unused portion of their ticket or rebooking on another flight, as well as compensation equal to $400 if the passenger arrives at their final destination between three and six hours late, and $800 if the delay is more than six hours.
In the case of a delay, passengers are entitled to compensation of up to $1000 if the delay is within the airline's control and lasts more than three hours. The amount of compensation varies depending on the length of the delay and the distance of the flight.

Air Travellers Are Unaware Of Their
Air Passenger Rights In Canada
Air passenger rights are protected by Canadian Transportation Agency (CTA) in Canada and the Department of Tourism (DOT) in the USA, which has established a set of regulations called the Air Passenger Protection Regulations. These regulations outline the minimum standards of treatment that airlines must provide to passengers in the event of flight disruptions, such as delays, cancellations, and denied boarding. The regulations also require airlines to provide clear and concise information to passengers about their rights and any available compensation. Additionally, the CTA and DOT have established a complaint process for passengers who feel that their rights have been violated, and can investigate and enforce penalties against airlines that do not comply with the regulations. The Air Passenger Protection Regulations aim to ensure that air travel is safe, reliable, and fair for all passengers.
