What's the smallest pet I can start traveling with that requires travel documents?
Maybe find a stuffed animal that identifies as a live one. That should do it these days.

Time sensitive...LY didnt load one of 2 bags in NY. The one with all our clothing. Found out as we landed in TLV. Booked through QF paid taxes on CSP. What am I entitled to right now AFAIK only $100 per passenger per day for essentials.
Final haul for this...

ELAL Paid ~$700 in cash and will be crediting the flights to Matmid as if we flew in revenue Business (when I see it I'll believe it) Yes I asked to credit to Alaska  ;D ::)
CSP paid maximum claim amount of $1k

New Sheitel for the DW...

Thanks to all who helped.

mid-2017 I was bumped offa UA flight ewr-pbi with very bad explanations from gate agents.first united would not give any compensation for there error. I filed a DOT. United offered me a $100 electronic voucher I balked. I thought i should get more for a bump without consent... is it still worth it to follow up with the dot and reopen case.
 any one ever done this type of thing
thanks

I was booked on UA85 TLV-EWR 02MAR and the flight was delayed about 12 hours.

First delay was about 3 hours and I received the following email:

UA 85: Your inbound plane is delayed because of a plane change that occurred so our maintenance team could service an issue in the cabin of the originally assigned plane.
Second delay was about 8-9 hours and I got the following email:

UA 85: Unfortunately, your flight has been further delayed because of FAA-mandated crew rest requirements on your inbound plane, which were impacted by earlier maintenance.

United proactively offered $200 in travel vouchers for the inconvenience but I think we may qualify for 3,080 NIS IASL compensation since the delay was over 8 hours. I emailed united and they responded: The review was recorded as showing UA85 as a NON IASL compensable flight due to the inbound flight was delayed which caused crew legality, meaning the crew could not travel any more hours.

Any insight?
