Aeroflot delayed flight by 5 and half hours which caused a missed connection and another 5 hour delay. Can I expect anything from them?

if you credit your flights to  a different airline can you still be eligible for compensation?if yes then how do they issue it to you they can't give you that particular airlines currency or travel vouchers? and can you be eligible to receive compensation on American flights flown  using ba points if you had a delayed flight  etc ?

Yes you should be fine, write to both and that way if one should tell you to go to the other you will be ahead of the game!
 Back a few years ago(talking when ba was 4.5k in the US) a flight from Virginia-LGA, whole flight was 1hr or so and was delayed for 6+ hours in the airport, was really mad, my whole reason for the flight was for me to arrive earlier in the day and not kill the day by sitting in a car which I could have done for 7-8 hours.
 Booked with BA and flew AA. Contacted ba and then got a response to contact AA, but it was like a game of cat and mouse and I gave up somewhere in between.
 But differently send a letter or an email and I'm sure you can get something. Good luck.

Been two plus weeks since I sent an email to AC, am I suppose to wait longer or reach out to them once more?

My brother in law just got delayed from ORD to LHR on the way to TLV.  18 hour delay.  Original ticket was purchased through BA, but operated by AA.  Any tips how much and how to get compensation from AA or BA?

Thanks in advance!

Unfortunately hes isn't entitled to mandatory compensation, but he can go to AA for something, although they are usually stingy, they should be a little more generous here.

They have told him "since you switched out of the AA system to be rebooked on BA, we no longer have any record of the flight." Sounds like a load of garbage to me.

Was the AA flight delayed, or BA?

AA flight was delayed because of crew shortage.  Original ticket was booked through BA.  New flight to LHR is on BA (18 hours later).

i wonder if theres any hope for compensation.....
LY. had 12:05 am flight. arrived at airport only to be told they only see me on 8:30am flight. i rarely check my emails so i quickly ckecked and saw an unread email from some weeks before informing me of flight cancellation and rebooking for 6:25. how it became 8:30 i still dont know. anyhow, she offered to put me on 12:20 am flight to jfk (i was enroute to ewr) with no bassinet or kosher meals guaranteed. i was traveling with infant and had absolutely no intention of waiting around that long so took jfk option. do they owe me anything?

why not mandatory Israeli compensation since the reason isn't weather related
