If you submit a complaint 75% you'll get something but it will be small.

I then guess it all depends, had several similar delays and did not get any compensation.

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

What can I expect or request?

While a very stressful and disturbing experience, you have to look at the facts. Your flight arrived at it's destination 3:20 late.
I imagine $100 vouchers is reasonable compensation for that, though you can always ask for more if you feel you deserve more.

TruE but 3:20 late is heckuva huge deal when it's 2:40 am not 11:20pm.

Also Uber took 23 minutes to come given the hour and ISP isolation.

It really cost me to get to hosts at 4:20am for say 12:15

I understand you completely but I don't think the airline will feel it's their responsibility to ensure that Ubers are available when they land and they probably won't deferentiate between a day delay or a night delay.

Aeroflot delayed flight by 5 and half hours which caused a missed connection and another 5 hour delay. Can I expect anything from them?

if you credit your flights to  a different airline can you still be eligible for compensation?if yes then how do they issue it to you they can't give you that particular airlines currency or travel vouchers? and can you be eligible to receive compensation on American flights flown  using ba points if you had a delayed flight  etc ?

Yes you should be fine, write to both and that way if one should tell you to go to the other you will be ahead of the game!
 Back a few years ago(talking when ba was 4.5k in the US) a flight from Virginia-LGA, whole flight was 1hr or so and was delayed for 6+ hours in the airport, was really mad, my whole reason for the flight was for me to arrive earlier in the day and not kill the day by sitting in a car which I could have done for 7-8 hours.
 Booked with BA and flew AA. Contacted ba and then got a response to contact AA, but it was like a game of cat and mouse and I gave up somewhere in between.
 But differently send a letter or an email and I'm sure you can get something. Good luck.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.
