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.

What are my chances of receiving any compensation for AA flight back on December that was cancelled. It was a connection in Dallas and because of a shortage of aircraft (Due to weather in Atlanta). Are those considered weather related? AA Declined me refund of my miles etc. Is this a case of HUCA? Fill out another complaint form?

I got this email from UA in regards to canceled flight from TLV Due to maintenance. Is this true ?




Thank you for contacting United Air Lines regarding your recent travel with us. 
 
We have again reviewed your request for cash compensation and found that we complied with all the applicable regulations at the time of your flight.
 
I understand that the delay was, at best, very frustrating and truly regret you were disappointed.  Please let me explain why cash compensation is not applicable under the Israeli Air Passenger Law.  Because all routine preventative maintenance actions were performed on the aircraft as scheduled, and the cancellation could not have been reasonably predicted or avoided, the event is considered force majeure and exclusionary to the mandatory compensation rules.
 
Please know that our legal department carefully reviews each of these matters with our system and technical operations groups to ensure we are in full compliance with the appropriate legal standards.  Although the cause of the irregularity was extraordinary and unable to be avoided, we did what we could to minimize it, and have nothing further to advise at this point.   
Although additional compensation is not forthcoming, we sincerely hope that you will choose to fly with United Airlines in the future.
 
Regards

Of course you should get fully refunded if your flight was canceled, it doesn't matter what the reason was.

No, not if they provided another flight.

You can ask for compensation but they don't have to refund you

EWR-TLV requested Polaris bedding upon boarding and again after door closed. Was promised and they never delivered. Second time this happened.
$200 UA travel certificate.
This flight is the gift that keeps on giving.
Saver booking, weather waiver change to revenue (Credited 5,666 to M&M)
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.
