Customer Service Plan

Lowest Fare

We will notify you when making a reservation or inquiring about a fare on our website, at the ticket counter, or through our telephone reservation center, that the lowest fare offered by us may be available elsewhere, if that is the case.

Flight Status Notifications

Within 30 minutes of becoming aware of delays, cancellations, and diversions, we will provide flight status information to both passengers and the public using the following methods:

  1. An announcement at the boarding gate area;
  2. Flight status boards
  3. Our website;
  4. Our telephone reservation system upon inquiry; and
  5. Any other flight status notification systems offered by us that a passenger has subscribed to.

Baggage

We will strive to deliver your baggage on time, but in the event it is delayed or misplaced, we will make reasonable efforts to return mishandled baggage within twenty-four hours and compensate you for reasonable expenses due to delay in delivery and/or as required by applicable international agreements for international flights. If we cannot locate your bag within 21 days it will be considered lost, and we will reimburse you for any fee charged to transport your bag.  Federal rules require any limit on an airline’s baggage liability to be at least $3,500 per passenger.

Claims for lost or damaged baggage can be submitted to the follow:

Properly Accommodating Passengers with Disabilities and Other Special-Needs Passengers

Our policies are intended to ensure full compliance with all federal regulations regarding passengers with disabilities, including providing transportation to, from, and between gates, and assisting passengers with disabilities during the boarding and deplaning process.

In addition, we will work to ensure children travelling alone remain safe and comfortable during their flight. For more information, refer to our contract of carriage section

Lengthy Tarmac Delays

During lengthy tarmac delays we will keep passengers timely informed on the status of the delay.  Within three hours for domestic flights and four hours for international flights, we will return to the gate and allow passengers to deplane, unless it is unsafe to do so.  During a lengthy tarmac delay, we will offer water and snacks within two hours of either leaving the gate or landing, and ensure the lavatories remain accessible.

For more information, please see our Tarmac Delay Plan.

Oversales

We will treat any passenger denied boarding due to an oversold flight with fairness and consistency.  In the event a flight is oversold, we will first solicit volunteers to give up their seats.  In the event there are not enough volunteers, we may deny boarding to passengers pursuant to our contract of carriage.  Certain passengers denied boarding will be eligible for compensation.

For more information, please see our Contract of Carriage.
