LH/UA
Flight was from TLV-FRA with LH connecting to EWR with UA, Flight was delayed in TLV that caused a misconnect in FRA, so airline put passengers on FRA-ORD-EWR with UA. Orig scheduled arrival was 2.05 PM, and actual time of arrival was 9.11 PM, are the passengers eligible for anything?

Very likely yes, depends on official reason for initial delay (maintenance / staff vs. weather).
7 hours is not enough for IL comp (needs 8+), but EU should kick in.

Delay reason was probably because it took ages for everybody to have their paperwork processed...
How would they claim EU compensation?

Dear El Capitan,

Thank you for your recent communication, from which I am very sorry to learn that your journey with us from New York to Amsterdam on 6 June 2021 was not as not as comfortable as it might have been.  Please accept our sincere apologies for the disappointment and inconvenience caused on this occasion.

We understand that cabin amenities such as power outlets and WiFi play a fundamental part in your comfort and enjoyment of a flight.  Therefore, cabin equipment is checked regularly for malfunctions.  However, it is unfortunately inevitable that things will go wrong from time to time.

When a fault arises, our staff will attempt to repair it on the spot whenever possible.  However, not all issues can be resolved in-flight and if the aircraft is away from a hub airport or home base, specialist help and spare parts may be harder to locate.  Therefore, rather than delay a flight, we will make sure that the fault is repaired as soon as the aircraft returns to base.

Furthermore, our cabin crews will document any malfunction that is brought to their attention during a flight using an automated system and this information is immediately available to our maintenance team who will seek to repair the fault as part of the post-landing maintenance checks.

As a token of our apologies for the inconvenience you encountered during your trip I would like to offer you a goodwill gesture on behalf of KLM. I will transfer 5.000 Flying Blue Miles to your account, these should be visible within 48 hours.


​In favor of El Capitan:
Miles credited to Flying Blue account.
Flying Blue Member:El Capitan
Miles amount:5,000

 
I hope your future flights with KLM and partners will be pleasant ones and that we will be able to regain your trust.

Yours sincerely,
Mr. J. Petiet
Air France KLM Customer Care Assistant

That's a tricky situation, I'm honestly not sure which airline would be responsible. I don't think it would be LifeMiles since they were not operating either of the flights. I'd  probably start with Brussels airlines. Also, what credit card did you use to book it? You might have delayed baggage coverage from your CC.

Ah too bad, AFAIK Amex Plat doesn't offer baggage delay insurance. That's one of the reasons I tend to prefer my CSR for flights, although it is definitely a trade-off since Plat offers 5x whereas CSR offers 3x...so you are giving up some points in exchange for better (IMO) insurance

Austrian from tlv to inn stopover in Vienna, arrived 10 min earlier then expected in Vienna but missed flights, next flight was 9hrs later so they gave me train tickets which are free for kids, went to pick up luggage, waited over 2 hrs + missed 2 trains until we got 3 out of 4 suitcases, they claimed they canít find it, so we left, got it 2 days later.
1) compensation for missed flight? (They told me on phone even itís a short period of time since itís sold as one they will wait)
2) compensation for suit case from Austrian, do I need actual receipt or self made invoice is fine.
3) chase sapphire preferred what can I get?

UA sent me $100 voucher per passenger. I think I should get more I responded and they basically said too bad. Any other options to get more compensation?

(Flight was JFK to LAX)

This is why we need EU style regulation here.
