You can buy matmid points for 1$ each.

Flew from JFK to TLV with Alitalia on the 26th. One of my suitcases never arrived. Now is Feb 2 and they still have no idea where it is. What can I do?

Look up Montreal convention.

Although I would not recommend relying on Alitalia.

If any one has experience with Alitalia specifically?

Whats the best way to get more compensation from United?

Flew on 2 business class tickets with United points from EWR to TLV, flight was delayed for a full day for no real reason. Went to the airport in middle of the night just to be sent home for another 12 hours. Ended up leaving on Thursday afternoon (was a wednesday flight) so was super nervous about Shabbos.

Then luggage didn't arrive with us even though we asked 20 times if it would. It only came on Sunday morning, a full Shabbos with no suitcases.

They offered us a compensation of $200 vouchers, and then complained again got $150 for each of us. And then told us to make a separate luggage claim (is it worth it to make a claim with the credit card even though the flight was paid for with miles, only a few dollars of tax on card)

It's ridiculous, I want a full refund of my miles. Anyone have a good contact at United for this type of situation.

Your miles were used to purchase a business class ticket, which you used in full. That means the miles have used up their value.

If you had incidental expenses then, make a claim. You can google "montreal convention". Some CC's provide delay protection.

JetBlue Mint 3pax LAX to JFK. They swapped out the aircraft to a plane with no biz class. What should I expect as compensation? Is this comparable to involuntarily denied boarding?
