Get paid when you're delayed!

If your flight was delayed, canceled or overbooked you could get up to $680!

When an airline bumps us from a flight or delays us for hours on end, most of us accept our meager meal vouchers and swallow our pride. A bold few might actually file a claim for compensation, but when an airline either fails to answer the claim or rejects it outright, those passengers usually give up, too.
Few things are more dreadful than dealing with airline customer service. Fortunately, there's a startup that wants to make those calls for you. For hassle-free travel, is raising $12 million in Series A funding from a group of investors, including Khosla Ventures and Evan Williams .
Don't get me wrong: I'm all about buying American. In fact, I'll go out of my way to search for items made in the USA and will even pay more for American-made products. But when it comes to buying airfare to foreign destinations, I think twice.
