Airline: Lufthansa
Flight: FRA-TLV
Class: Business (award ticket booked with CO)
Incident: 1 piece of luggage did not arrive until next day. They would not deliver it without a fee.
Compensation: 5000 CO miles
Why is TLV luggage delivery so darn ridiculous?

Airline:Delta
Flight:JFK-TLV
Class:Economy but upgraded to business- mileage booking
Incident: Missing Car seat (with loads of things inside the car seat bag besides car seat...)
Compensation: Just happened yesterday.. but i hope i get sumthin really good! I have delay insurance with Amex, and I will complain to delta... I had to drive home with a child in my lap for a half hour from airport home... pretty unsafe!!
So far I received a check from delta hassle free of 370$ cus I purchased another car seat ONLINE and sent them the receipt. I bought the best rated car seat they had avail lol. And than I wrote to them that I sacrificed the safety of my son on my trip home due to the lack of carseat and I believe I should be compensated for that as well. Didn't yet receive an email back. And I got my luggage delivered m. Shabbos.

ok the end is near... i got 370$ check from delta, plus 200$ voucher from delta, PLUS 370$ from Amex- i took out extra baggage insurance :) not bad for a delay in a car seat... and i get to sell my other carseat which is in great condition and it sells for waaay more than i paid for it in israel!!

Airline: Lufthansa
Flight: FRA-NYC
Class: Economy
Incident: Came to fra from a connecting flight, the original LH flight was delayed due to the plane arriving there late, arrive to fra 20 min b4 next flight, they put us on a bus to take us directly to the aircraft, but decided in middle the way that they dont wanna wait for us, so bumped us off till the next morning on a CO with no kosher meal & gave us hotel and kosher restaurant in Frankfurt.
Compensation: 20% off next reservation on LH.

What pigs they are, I fired off a nasty long email how bad it was, we were 8 people, told them how I missed an important meeting in NY and we had nothing to eat or drink in FRA prior to the flight as the hotel didn't serve kosher breakfast. After describing the entire incident and heard nothing from them for over a week I received a letter yesterday how sorry they are bla bla bla, and they'r giving me a 20% cert for my next reservation.

How lame???


Do you guys think I can get compensation from Continental for the non kosher meals on their flight? being that it was a LH ticket...

Was this an award ticket?

If so, then yes you can complain to Lufthansa about it even if booked with Continental.

   my experience is in order to make sure you get a meal you have to call the airline your actually flying on not the ticketing/booking airline even then its not 100%
 but good luck trying for compensation nothing to lose by asking
even el-al if you have a legit complaint will give u 200 matmid points if you nudge long enough they hope youll forget and not presist but for those that do their is a small reward

Why would you complain to them? I mean I guess it can't hurt to try.
