Hello and thank you for the question.
If you were advised that you would be able to fly and the damages and losses were forseeable
you may pursue a claim
practically, expect the airline to offer a lower settlement and a court would typically not award all lost wages
but there is enough of a claim to pursue and seek settlement given misrepresentation and resulting losses.
You may want to add leverage to the claim
by threatening a consumer complaint or legal action or involving local counsel as well.
are you there?

Tried to expedite your question
Kindly rate it positively
if I can clarify anything else, of course, ask me
Will do. I'm just processing your answer.
How would I word the loss wages when filing the claim?
As a result of defendant's breach, plaintiff suffered forseeable and actual damages in the form of lost wages, which are at least $________
Ok Thank you.
One last question: Small claims limits are up to 12lk. The difference between the ticket costs and expenses are about 10k. Can I claim 10k worth of loss wages if the Employer agrees to sign off on My salary amount etc.. The job would have been 60k per year.
stay within the limits
and keep the amount reasonable and corresponding to actual loss
and be prepared to settle
