United EWR-TLV flight cancelled due to weather last night. Sat on plane for hours, it seems, before being told cancelled. In-laws returned home 12 hours after they were supposed to take off. Don't have luggage yet. What comp could they receive- most likely cancelling their trip and not trying to reschedule..

Interesting, because when you check the incoming flight from Chicago, it says delayed due to technical issues. Always easy to blame the weather.
BTW, they actually departed at 12:37pm today. Almost 14 hours late!

I know, but what happens when It’s a combined weather/technical issue?
Due to this delay, tonight’s flight UA91 is delayed till tomorrow morning. May run into shabbos problem for some.

If you get a report from AA you should get $100 per person per 24hr. from CSR for expenses.

I'm not sure if its considered delayed baggage in terms of them reimbursement as per DOT rules but I would by items that you can ultimately return which are "verifiable incidental expenses".

Hope this helps you.
Always praying for delayed baggage.

Same thing happened to me tonight on southwest.  They had us switch flights bc my first leg got delayed.  First available flight is tomorrow. They told me I could wait for my bags.  I sent my wife and kids back to my in laws and my son and I waited for our luggage.  After around two hours they said it got routed to LA.  No clothes.  Also frozen meat.  I booked with miles and Southwest priority card. But they said that I can't file for delayed baggage bc the baggage is not delayed.  We were delayed.  It's maddening. Do I have any recourse regarding insurance or with the airline?

A family member was on Delta flight 2385 last week that was delayed 8 hours on the tarmac. There was no food or water for at least 3-4 hours. She even noticed water bottles and was told it was "only for first class." Delta started by offering everyone 10,000 Skypesos. Obviously unacceptable. I suggested she reach out and see what else they offer. Now they are up to a $200 voucher or 31,500 pesos. Any thoughts on next steps? Should she take any of those offers? File a DOT complaint? Anything else?
