A replacement or repair, best advice is, always  initiate your claim in the airport.
Always praying for delayed baggage.

AA sent me a check for damaged Doona (full price of original purchase receipt).

Others here have had similar experiences.

Hi, I had a two hours delay from Paris to Atlanta (delta) due to bad weather. We were notified of the delay after we all boarded. This was an award ticket from my husband's account, who is platinum, and paid for with his amex gold business card.
Any compensation to be expected?

Wasn't sure if to post this in the ELAL thread or here, but decided to post here as it has important information regarding other carriers too. It also confirmed my guess about some of the LCCs operating in Europe, with WizzAir being the most reasonable, followed by easyjet, and RyanAir the one to avoid.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

United flight Sunday from JAX to EWR was delayed at gate 45 minutes due to weather and another 40 minutes due to a mechanical problem. That caused me to miss my connection to TLV by literally 2 minutes (Even though gate agents in Jax and flight crew promised they would wait for me in Ewr, and refused to let me off the plane when the technical issue came up) They wouldn’t rebook me on partners via Europe so I had to wait in Newark for almost 7 hours.
What can I expect? And what’s the best way to get it?

United flight 90 EWR-TLV, Jan 21, delayed 7 hours, due to mechanical issue.
What is the max that united will compensate?

Also can you get any compensation if return was a hidden city?

you wont get much, maybe 200
Why would HC be a factor for compensation?

Thanks.
I thought since a HC is considered a non legitimate fare as the fare to real destination would cost more - they would not compensate. unless they are convinced it was not planned to be missed.

Ticket with LH J booked with lifemiles from BUD-MUC-EWR on 2.3.19, BUD to MUC was cancelled due to bad weather in MUC.

Was rebooked BUD-FRA on 2.3.19 and FRA-JFK on 2.4.19.

Am I eligible for something? (I got the hotel in FRA from LH)

Just my opinion, I doubt it,it was due to weather, they provided a hotel and rebooked you as soon as they could.Trying will not hurt, give it a shot.
I was the Best,still the Best, and will always be the Best.
Pele Good,Maradona Better, George Best.
