You need to get maintenance records. You can then argue that the checks and maintenance procedure wasn't thorough enough and thereby making it "within their control".

I believe the burden of proof is on the airline, not on the claimant.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I have a passenger with UA flight 90 on OCT 23, departed 7:54 am OCT 24. (~9 hours late).
They said due to technical reasons.

Israeli aviation law, should cover this, but as op, UA will prob claim "xtraordinary circumstances".
should I try myself, or should take an Israeli lawyer?

What does "not afraid of Israeli law" mean? Just file the claim and assert your rights under Israeli aviation law. You could mention that based on that law you are entitled to the maximum compensation (though I wouldn't be surprised if they might raise the fact that TLV doesn't allow takeoff between 1:00am (or thereabouts) and 5:00am which is beyond their control.

In Israel the only way it's enforceable is through court - they know people aren't going to sue. Really someone needs to put together a class action.

Why would people not sue? People regularly sue, and there are law firms that specialize in it.

Out of a plane full of united flyers, how many do you think know or care enough to sue? I'm guessing it's below 10%.

Possible. So educate them.
