In the past, before the pandemic, I read or heard that there is such a thing as airlines selling more tickets for a flight than the number of seats. Then at the last minute, some tickets holders are denied boarding if everybody shows up. This has not been done to me yet. I have taken 4 solo trips to Europe and some trips within the USA. My trip to Spain is in October unless I have to cancel it or unless they cancel it. Supposed the airline decides they have keep middle seats empty, so they deny boarding to 1/3 of ticket holders including me, at the last minute? What do I do at te airport if denied boarding? Would they just give me my money back? What about the trip I planned? What about money lost on tickets and hotels?
I am a 37 year old man solo traveler. The office I work at re-opened May 18. I have reservations for hostels (shared rooms). I have not caught coronavirus disease or any other sickness. I have no known health problems. Some opinions say travelers are nuts for risking their safety and supposedly spreading coronavirus 2019. Other opinions say, the pandemic is far less serious that previously feared and most people who die of coronavirus are over a certain age and those with certain health problems.
