For domestic flight, AA just delayed our suitcases. Rep said I was authorized to make "necessary and reasonable" purchases that they will then compensate. So far, we spent about $500. One bag out of four came today (though email makes it sound like they think they were all delivered). Planning on spending more $ soon on clothing that is needed. Anyone with experience on this feel free to chime in.

Anyone with experience please reach out. Flying from DXB to EWR with United. Flight delayed from 2am to 11:30 pm. almost full day. What compensation am I entitled to? If I call United would they tell me what I am entitled to?
Flight delayed due to flight crew not arriving yet

CDG-JFK AA no KSML even though it was ordered
I submitted 2 complaints, one for each passenger.  We got a sincere apology, but nothing else.
I respond to the email?  What do I ask for?  A specific number of miles? or just a general I want compensation for having no food for 8 hours while paying for J ?

I had a Customer that was a Chosson he flew with SN and had all his clothing in the suitcase. His suitcase was delayed a few days so he bought a whole new wardrobe. and SN responded that they are only obligated by law to give $1817.29 and that's what they did!

That is pretty great for a 191 mile flight. You would be lucky to get a snack in F on NYC to Boston.

recently flew bluebird airlines from TLV to ATH. the flight was delayed by over 4 hrs. Just received an email (as did a few friends of mine who were on my flight) from a company AirHelp that said i was elgible for compensation (about 300 euro after the fees)under some new rule. is this a scam or i could be elgible for compensation for a delayed flight to europe? If yes Should i try my hand directly with airline or go through this company which takes 50%?

A 4 hour delay to Europe should be eligible for compensation under EU261 (250 euros). The Israeli law comp of 1300 Shekels is only for delays over 8 hours. Iíd definitely try reaching out to the airline directly to handle this. You can always try agencies later if you get denied. Not sure where they get 300 euro from.

"Your Athens flight may be eligible for compensation under EU Regulation (EC) No. 261/2004, which protects European passengers against lengthy delays and other travel disruptions. To provide you with the best possible service, we have partnered with AirHelp to assist you in getting the compensation you deserve. We recommend AirHelp as they are specialists in claiming compensation for delayed, cancelled and overbooked flights. They make the process as simple and stress-free as possible. However you are free to submit your claim directly to the airline if you prefer."

they said its elgible up to 600 euro but they charge 50% in fees
i submitted a claim direct with the airline although i dont expect much cooperation from them
