When you have a confirmed reservation, airlines in the US and EU are 
required to pay "delayed boarding compensation" when you are 
involuntarily bumped, unless the reason is something completely outside 
their control (such as the weather or when planes are ordered grounded 
as happened after 9/11), or they are flying smaller jets (special 
exceptions because of weight-and-balance safety rules).  This is in 
addition to allowing you to use your ticket on the next available 
flight.  If you elect to make alternate travel arrangements US airlines 
also have to refund your ticket, even when it's a "non-refundable" ticket.
