Are cancelled flights leaving TLV eligible for any compensation? I assume not because of war but checking just in case
But Travel Insurance, even though some have a war exclusion, some do cover for terrorism cancellations and I think this should be covered, however it's not for compensation only for expenses incurred

filed with airline and submitted a form with regulatory body of Greece. how long should i expect to wait on this one.
does it make a difference if i booked the flight through a third party travel agency (KIWI.com)?
i filed over a month ago with the greece regulatory body. Still no reponse. should i reach out again or these things take a while?

Unfortunately no coverage for alternative travel. Especially if it’s due to an unexpected war.

Terrorism is covered, however it seems that alternate travel is not covered, only by Amex

Good to know Amex covers. I once learnt the hard way that Chase doesn’t.

Pretty sure most paid insurances cover.

In the airport, or after you claimed?
Most airlines try to get out of paying based on the assumption that if your at home - you dont need essentials...
If you can explain why the delayed baggage did have essentials that you need (like a suit, breast pump or the like)... you should have a chance

CSR is usually the acronym for Chase Sapphire Reserve which would be the CC not the airline.
 ETA: but I assume you meant Customer Service Representative.
correct I meant Customer Service Rep...Couldn't understand what was unclear :)

Does anyone have a contact who can help with getting more compensation from Turkish Airlines than what they initially offered?
