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?
