Notice for overbooking of flights:

Ravn Alaska flights may be overbooked. If the flight is overbooked, no one will be denied a seat until the airline personnel first asks for volunteers willing to give up their reservation in exchange for a payment of the airlines choosing. If there are not enough volunteers, Ravn Alaska will deny boarding to persons in accordance with a particular boarding priority. With few exceptions, persons denied boarding involuntarily are entitled to compensation. The complete rules for the payment of compensation boarding priorities are available at all ticket counters and boarding locations.

Customers of Size Seating Policy

Ravn Alaska strives to best serve our customers’ unique needs by providing safe and comfortable flights for all its passengers. Ravn Alaska requires the purchase of an additional seat for any customer who cannot comfortably fit within one seat with the armrest in the down position. The armrest is considered to be the definitive boundary between seats; width between the armrest measure 17 inches. The purchase of an additional seat(s) serves as a notification to Ravn Alaska of a special seating need, to adequately plan for the number of seats that will be occupied on the aircraft. Most importantly, it ensures that all customers onboard have access to safe and comfortable seating.

Please note: Passengers are eligible for a refund of the second seat if an open seat was available for each segment of the ticket.

Advice to International Travelers on Limitation of Liability

Passengers embarking upon a journey involving an ultimate destination or a stop in a country other than the country of departure are advised that the provisions of a treaty known as the Warsaw Convention may be applicable to their entire journey, including the portion entirely within the countries of departure and destination. The Convention governs and, in most cases, limits the liability of carriers to passengers for death or personal injury to approximately $10,000. Additional protection can usually be obtained by purchasing insurance from a private company. Such insurance is not affected by any limitation of the carrier’s liability under the Warsaw Convention. For further information please consult your airline or insurance company representative.
