if the airport was on lock down, its not their fault

My question isn't if it's their fault or not. I actually know it's not (as I mentioned in the post the reason for the delay ). Rather what are ppl's experiences in such a case? Will they compensate or not? (I have received compensations even in cases where the company wasn't at fault )

What are the grounds for compensation? Did he get transportation to Ewr?

Almost 3 hour delay on AF CDG-TLV due to aircraft arriving late on account of poor weather at origin. Any point in asking?

They use weather sometimes when it is not, check if there was really any weather issues to cause the delay.

What can I expect for a Business class ticket not properly booked by quantas agent, which led to missing a flight ? I changed flights via agent and it wasnít issued correctly. When I came to airport they told me itís not ticketed. By the time quantas was able to ticket it (about 40 min phone call) I wasnít able to take that flight. Elal put me on the next flight which is at 3:30, and also to Newark instead of Jfk which I need. What can I expect for compensation ?

 United from EWR to JAX was delayed 2.5 hours due to their radio not working. They took us back to the gate after taxiing, and made us switch planes. Anything we can get?

Booked an LH ticket with UA, and had a delay of 3+ hours. Do I file a complain with LH or UA?

that would depend on what you're complaining about. Most probably UA.

EU compensation? With the operating carrier.
