Delta LGA-PBI 2 Adults + 2 children under the age of 3,  flight was delayed 3 hours while taxiing due to bad weather (Officially) although they did go back to the gate when a passenger wanted to get off... Do you think they'll give anything ? and how much?

Airline: Etihad
Flight: JFK-AUH
Class: First
Incident: Bags lost for 3 days and no KSML
Compensation: A sincere apology inflight, and an apology letter.

Airline: Etihad
Flight: AUH-CMN
Class: Business
Incident: Flight delayed 6+ hours, 4 of which we were kept on the plane without A/C. Staff admitted they knew of the software issue before boarding, but thought they'd be able to repair it eventually.
Compensation: Apology letter.
update: we are now holding at $300 Travel bank for the delay, and $180 cash for the luggage.

Sounds pretty weak for me based on how bad this sounds. Better than what you started out with though. Are you happy?

Agree and as i mentioned I dont blame united, they handled it quite well..

$250 each for KSML is about standard IMO

I disagree on the second incident not being on United. While not being their fault, they have a responsibility to deliver a safe and comfortable experience to all of their passengers. I'm happy to hear that they handled it professionally on the flight, but would also push for serious compensation for something like this.

You got $100 per passenger for a 1 hour delay?
