My brother and his kids were due to fly from Belfast to Inverness today. Because Flybe over-booked the flight, only his two sons got one (17 and 12) but he got re-booked onto a flight into Aberdeen. He then had to get a taxi home to Inverness which I presume the airline paid for.

Is he due flight compensation as he arrived at his original destination 5.5hrs later than he should have.

Are the airline at fault for overbooking? The flight was neither cancelled or delayed, he just couldnt get on it as it was full (he already had his tickets, the flight was a return leg back)

Any info well appreciated
