Cathay 1am flight EWR-HKG canceled 30 minutes before scheduled departure.
After getting sent from 1 agent to another 3x, no one at the airport would help rebook a flight when direct flights were still available. I had to call Hong Kong offices and after 3 hours I finally got rebooked for a flight 9 hours later from PHL-ORD-HKG with a 4 hour stopover. Furthermore, my seat was broken on the plane, and instead of upgrading me to an open premium economy seat, they tried fixing it for an hour before sticking me in the last row.

I complained to Cathay FA and she filed a complaint for me. I was offered a measly $100 voucher for all this trouble.
Any ideas how I can get more? Are they legally allowed to screw me with a terrible indirect flight and get away scot-free!?

Update: After responding to them, I was then offered $200 credit or $200 cash.
I took the cash of course.
Live forever or die trying.

A friend of mine was telling me about a flight he took back in June which he accidentally booked for the wrong month and showed up at the airport not realizing that he booked for a month before or it was a month later they told him he would have to pay an additional $150 for them to change the date or they can't do anything, he was with a bunch of friends at that time,as he was willing to pay $150 to have his date changed for the flight that leaves on that date at the right month but his friends weren't willing to do that so they ended up losing out on the original fight booked (was for 4-5 ppl) any chance he can get his money back?

Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

BOS-SFO on UA. Wife and I were seated 39CD with aisle between us. FA announced over PA that a family of three with small children were separated and wanted to sit together...any volunteers? DW and I and the middle seat next to me all offered, and they moved us all to isolated middle seats.  FA offered all kinds of food and drinks.... I declined but asked for miles. Gave me and my DW 7,500 each, on the spot via their special app. Nice!
