Overbooking at Iberia

Overbooked Iberia flight: When Iberia sells more tickets than the possible number of passengers they can accommodate.

The overbooking is legal, but you are entitled to a compensation up to € 600.

Iberia aims to avoid empty seats due to no-shows, and this must be legally sanctioned.

When the Iberia passenger has received a flight ticket or any document stating the payment has been accepted and registered, it is a “confirmed reservation”. Boarding denials happen when a passenger presents to the gate but Iberia refuses them access to the plane.

Late arrival with Iberia

Even if this is the most punctual airline in Europe, they also commit errors and arrive late sometimes. In those cases which the arrival to your destination is ober 3 hours late, you have the right to claim for a delay to Iberia. The compensation table above applies here too.
