Such comp, much worth it.
Donít discount the value of what another DDFer can offer.  I donít know @ludmila personally, but my instinct tells me that he has lots of wisdom (secrets?) to share.

I'm on an AA married segment award ticket, was supposed to be ATL-DCA-IND. I'm getting off in DCA but the flight out of ATL is delayed 3.5 hrs causing me to "miss" my connection obviously and I'll be "forced to stay overnight in DCA." I'm obviously not going to bring anything up here in ATL as I want to get to DCA tonight, not IND. The question is do I try to see if I can get some sort of comp when I land in DCA or just drop it? Award booked out of my own AA account, taxes paid with CSR.
Interesting idea. I had a similar question last week with a HC JAX-EWR-PIT. I got to Newark and flight to Pittsburgh was delayed. Thought of asking for a full refund but then decided that may be pushing it so I just left the airport. What would they say if I ask for a refund? Would they make me go back to JAX?

Somethings just don't come across the same way in writing. IND DO?

What about...
DDF DO: Jerusalem Edition
 https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink?share_fid=16768&share_tid=22041&url=https%3A%2F%2Fforums%2Edansdeals%2Ecom%2Findex%2Ephp%3Ftopic%3D22041&share_type=t
The irony of it is that the picture showing for the Jerusalem Do Thread in Tapa is a meme saying "NEVEEERRRRRRR!!!"
I'm not who you think I am.

Airline: IB
Flight: TLV-MAD
Class: Business
Incident: No kosher meal (despite confirming KSML online and 3 by phone)
Compensation: "We understand that you were dissatisfied with the menu offered and we appreciate you taking the trouble to contact us. Please note that passengers can choose menu on our long haul flights up to 48 hours before the flight leaves"
Gee thanks

Southwest fll to ISP 8:30 flight arrives in ISP 11;20 or wtvr. Delayed till 12am, landed 2:40. Took forever to get uber, got to my hosts in woodmere at 4:21am.

Southwest gave out $100 vouchers, while nice, it's wholly inadequate. They aknowledged mechanical issues and plane shortages I'm guessing due to 737-max but getting to my destination at 4:21 am when it should have been 12sh is unacceptable.

Had it been any other time I'd have gone next day but didn't want to risk with pesach

Via Twitter they kinda said that if you select "meal service" in the complaint you basically automatically get that reply, so they recommended selecting other, otherwise there is really no one to talk to

Usually they give 10k miles or something, $150 is good.
