Need some advice from the olam. I was on a delta domestic flight to fly to an afternoon business meeting, flying back home the next morning. Because of equipment malfunction, the flight was delyaed, so instead of getting in at 12:50, I got in 3:30 which made some difficulties. They tried to reroute on other airlines etc, but this was the best they could do. They gave me $7 food voucher.
What is reasonable to ask delta? A voucher towards flights or miles? how much?

Send a complaint. If you're not satisfied with that, call up corporate customer care.

They answered very quickly, got to give them credit for that. They gave me 4000 miles, which is really useless to me since I dont collect or have any delta miles.

Airline: UA
Flight: STL-DEN
Class: Economy ($100 flight booked with a $75 UA voucher)
Complaint: I called to change the date of my flight due to weather.  They couldn't find my reservation when I got to the airport.   After nearly 45 minutes, they figured out that the idiot telephone agent booked me on flight from SEATTLE to DEN instead of ST LOUIS to DEN.  Barely made the flight...

I'd think it was more likely to use STL for Seatttle than SEA for St. Louis... Hmmm.

Ended up with 8,000 since the issue was both ways, and I flew on 2 separate record locators. I first complained for one way, and then I replied that this was both ways.

AA.

You don't believe me. If I wrote so, I did so.
Online. And yes, I think that everything the airline does that was not in favor of the passengers must be reported, regardless of if you'll get compensation or not. Such a stupid issue like not having water in the bathrooms, they have probably going on so a long time, just nobody was stupid enough to make "an issue out of tissue", until...
I believe a few more claims will have them fix the problem.

Actually, we as observant Jews lack the most of that, not being able to eat or drink until we wash our hands.
