What regulations are applicable for overbooked/cancelled flights around the globe?

I travel from time to time in Europe and there is EU 261/2004 regarding overbooked and cancelled flights. Is there any alternative legislation or regulations per Country/Region/Airline?

I did research on the web, travel.stackexchange.com and wikipedia but didn't find any clear information for regions different from EU.

  • I am voting to close this question as too broad. AFAIK, the EU regulation is the only case where common compensation rules are in effect in several countries. Since there are more than 150 non-EEA countries, each likely with different regulations for compensation, it is not possible to answer this question as asked. Commented Jul 16, 2019 at 12:57

    @Tor-EinarJarnbjo Do you propose to create 150+ questions for each separate country? Do you have any suggestions how to improve this question? I am interested in 10-20 countries only, I thought it could be regional guidelines for such cases which I simply couldn't find. Commented Jul 16, 2019 at 13:16

    If you are interested in only a few countries I suggest you edit to ask only about those countries. Commented Jul 16, 2019 at 13:21
