What exactly is the difference?
Thank you!
That answers my question.
I was wondering if perhaps one had a quicker turnaround or maybe complaints as attachments don't get responses...

YYZ-TLV (J) on Air Canada. Baggage was sent to Scotland instead of TLV. Will AC provide anything besides reimbursement for incidentals?

Don't have any cc coverage for delayed baggage on this particular ticket.

Had a flight DTW-ATL-TLV. DTW-ATL was delayed causing a missed connection. Ended up taking ATL-MUC-TLV. Final arrival time was 7 hours after scheduled arrival time. What compensation is entitled?
What was the reason for the DTW-ATL delay? If it was mechanical issues or something that could be the airlines fault, then they will be responsible to give the 3400 NIS according to Israeli law. We just had this with Delta and it took some time until they gave it but we got it eventually.

Israeli compensation requires a delay of 8 hours +.
Very nice they rebooked on LH. Wouldn’t necessarily happen on another airline.

Friend flying YYZ-EWR during the whole United fiasco a few weeks ago. Checked in for flight early in the morning. Flight was for 12 was delayed to 1. Showed up to airport approx 75 min before. Was at gate approx 55 min before. Agent said gave away seats because you have to be by gate 90 min before flight (most likely made up. United site seems like 30 min at gate 90 min to check in). Managed to rebook much later but to LGA.  Had to Uber to EWR and got home 6/7 hours later than planned. Complained to UA got $100 voucher per pax.

Is this considered involuntary bump?
DOT complaint?

If the departure time was showing the new flight (meaning they didn't push it back to the original time) the new times apply as if the old ones didn't exist

Another example of airline vs. smartphone

https://airinsight.com/another-example-of-airline-vs-smartphone/
Not going to change unless people complain to regulatory bodies with evidence of the lies
1 or 2 good fines together with some media attention about how so and so should not be trusted should take care of the lying part
