Your Rights as an
In principle, LATAM Airlines is obliged to inform passengers of an impending cancellation. In a situation where this is done with more than 14 days before scheduled departure date, LATAM is then mandated to make a replacement transport available and the passengers retain the right to say if they want to take the offer or not. But in a situation where at least 14 days notice isn’t given before a flight is cancelled, passengers are then entitled to monetary compensation which is dependent on the flight distance and not on the ticket price. Compensations are also given to passengers whose flight has been delayed for at least 3 hours. It should however be noted that airlines are not responsible for delayed or cancelled flights resulting from exceptional circumstances such as Bird strikes and Thunderstorms.
