I know, I'm asking if United ever gives more than $150-$200

Airline: Delta
Flight: JFK-ATL
Class: J
Incident: IFE issues.
Compensation: 9,000 miles.

Considering that I only paid 14,500 miles for the trip, I consider that to be pretty decent.

I would say itís fair. 2,500 for comfort is good deal.

Delta F for only 10k?

Sure. Itís only a 45 minute flight, no service.

Air Canada from EWR to Calgary, stopover in Toronto. 15 minute delay, they bumped my wife from the flight, and made her fly the next day, said it was customs fault, didn't offer any compensation. What can I do? Can I prove they really did it because the flight was overbooked? Is it their fault there was only a 1 and a half hour stopover? She made it to the gate 20 minutes before takeoff, but they cancelled her flight in advance, saying there was no way her luggage could make it.

This happened to me on Turkish from jfl to tlv, stop in IST. Arrived 15 minutes before and didn't let us on because suitcases wouldn't make it (my brother was flying first on same flight, and they said his suitcases can make it but he doesn't need to board if he doesn't want to). Six hour later we walked out 600 euro wealthier each. But this is with EU comp.
I'm not who you think I am.

AC is always doing it if they think you will not make the connection, try to ask them IDB

Had a flight with AA to Montreal Thursday night arrived late (40 minutes before the flight) with no luggage was told by the counter they cannot print me a boarding pass my only option is to come tomorrow Friday on standby,

came back Friday morning on time the first flight at 8:40 the flight was canceled due to the weather, then I went on standby for the second flight at 11:05 and that flight was overbooked, this basically ruined my trip for Shabbos for a family Simcha,

what are my options? money back ? can I get another ticket ?

I booked a ticket to JFK to Europe on Delta and a few weeks later, they emailed me that my flight has been moved a day earlier. Apparently, the flight I booked has been mysteriously cancelled. They also offered to fly me a day later or via stopover.
What can I ask for compensation? Do you think theyll pay for expenses for the extra day? Or should I ask for a Delta One upgrade (I already have a Delta One seat in one direction).
Any experiences, or advice?
