Air Canada from EWR to Calgary, stopover in Toronto. 15 minute delay, they bumped my wife from the flight, and made her fly the next day, said it was customs fault, didn't offer any compensation. What can I do? Can I prove they really did it because the flight was overbooked? Is it their fault there was only a 1 and a half hour stopover? She made it to the gate 20 minutes before takeoff, but they cancelled her flight in advance, saying there was no way her luggage could make it.
AC is always doing it if they think you will not make the connection, try to ask them IDB

Had a flight with AA to Montreal Thursday night arrived late (40 minutes before the flight) with no luggage was told by the counter they cannot print me a boarding pass my only option is to come tomorrow Friday on standby,

came back Friday morning on time the first flight at 8:40 the flight was canceled due to the weather, then I went on standby for the second flight at 11:05 and that flight was overbooked, this basically ruined my trip for Shabbos for a family Simcha,

what are my options? money back ? can I get another ticket ?

I booked a ticket to JFK to Europe on Delta and a few weeks later, they emailed me that my flight has been moved a day earlier. Apparently, the flight I booked has been mysteriously cancelled. They also offered to fly me a day later or via stopover.
What can I ask for compensation? Do you think theyll pay for expenses for the extra day? Or should I ask for a Delta One upgrade (I already have a Delta One seat in one direction).
Any experiences, or advice?

Air Canada from Toronto to Newark. Basic Economy.
We were on the plane for an hour and 15 minutes until they took off.
Should we ask for compensation, and if yes, what can we expect?
Thanks.

Can't hurt to ask, but don't expect anything.
I'm not who you think I am.
