The two-hour rule states that if a passenger arrives within two hours of their missed flight, the airline employee can put you on the next flight with the same airline on standby at no charge.
If you miss the last flight of the day, you’ll be standby on the first flight the next day.
What happens if I miss a flight on purpose?
If you missed a flight because you were late to the airport, you don’t have any real rights. Under most domestic airline policies — which are outlined in the contract of carriage on the airline website — if you miss a connection, it will rebook you on the next flight at no charge.25 Mar 2018
Can you get charged for missing a flight?
Depending on the airline, travelers may be charged a rebooking fee to get on another flight. Some airlines may also charge the difference in airfare — meaning a missed flight can be a costly inconvenience. Southwest, on the other hand, never charges change fees — but travelers may have to shoulder the fare difference.22 Jan 2018
