UK company.. You want a GBP check mailed to you (with chance of getting lost or delayed)?

J class on Alaska (jfk/lax)but purchased thru AA. Bathrooms were disgusting, had fake business even though was touted as "first" . Seat was broken, FA were not nice. Overall not a good experience. Any options? Or Alaska will bounce me around?

What do you mean by fake business? Alaska doesn't offer lie flat in any route.

you're not entitled to any, unless on an EU airline.

nope sorry :-\
Though UA will most probably comp you a 150/200
Can get more if you call and ask
Good luck!
And remember being nice and pleading your case will get you much more than demanding.

Group of 4 delayed 4+ hours on DL141 BRU-JFK yesterday.

"Mechanical Issues", waiting for "spare part".

Submitted EU261 to Delta.

They said they did not finalize if this "incident" qualifies for compensation. Will know later this week.

I pointed out that only weather is exempted, the Phone rep literally laughed.

Yesh Tikva?

PSA.
I was having trouble getting compensation from LX
They kept on giving me different excuses and each time had to wait a few weeks for a response

Used air help.com and they got my money! -25%
Worth it if you don't want to deal with the back and forth
