Is it generally easier to get higher compensation for E+ vs E on UA?

Would think that depends on the situation

booked 2 tickets in j for parents with LX TLV-JFK. booked thru m&m and ordered kosher food (not that they would eat it, but enough for compensation....). they didn't get it. emailed LX, and they claimed it was never ordered, but they still gave me a $200 voucher for each of them.

Is there really much you can do with a $200 Swiss voucher?

I've found that Swiss is very stingy and wouldn't budge for a legitimate issue.

they are both sold already  ;D, I think $200 for not getting a meal is enough to get a good meal ;)

Flight delayed on UA
EWR-BRU
6+ hours
Deplaned after 2 hours then UA kept on adding another hour to the delay, finally after 6+ hours they boarded and took off 6hr50 after scheduled departure.
What should I expect?

You probably qualify for EU compensation.

Hmm, you appear to be correct. I was not aware that there was a difference.
