You mention weight reduction. Was the flight oversold or were you removed due to weight issues because of weather? If it was due to weigh restrictions, you are not entitled to IDB
Whether someone is entitled to IDB compensation when there is a weight and balance issue depends on the size of the aircraft. In such situations, small planes (i.e., small commuter aircraft or certain xmall RJs) are exempt from the IDB rules, but weight and balance would not be an exemption for mainline service.
