If an airline overbooks a flight and you are involuntarily bumped, then you have rights that are guaranteed by federal law. Basically the airline has to get you on another flight, stat. If that flight arrives between one and two hours later than your original arrival time — or between one and four hours for an international flight — the airline has to pony up twice the amount of your one-way fare up to $675. If the new flight gets you to your destination more than two hours late — or four hours for international flights — the airline has to pay you four times the one-way fare, up to $1,350.
