So the flight originated in Israel via Germany to Canada.  Which country's comp rules are  most generous? Do I have to choose one set of rules when applying for the compensation?

Is the lufthanasa strike today going to exempt lufthansa from paying EU or Israeli comp for effected passengers?
Strike is not exempt from EU261

Does anyone know how to get a response out of lufthansa? I filed a claim for 600 euro compensation for a flight delay as required by EU law. They replied that they would send it and asked for bank details which i gave them. Its now been over 6 weeks and i didnt hear back from then or receive any compensation...
nice tey at least asked you for  bank details i am waiting since april for response none whatsoever..the schweinhunds

Lie flat seat on Elal not working properly the last few hours of flight.
FA offering 500 matmid points. Should I insist for something better or cash?
If it benefits even just one fellow DDFer, its worth posting it.

Only the last few hours? Did it break halfway through the flight?

If this guy actually gets $72k thatís gotta be a record. Not a very smart traveller though- if heís constantly flying with that much equipment he shouldíve definitely insured it.

True ending: on a whim, he went into Ben Gurion (had a security guard allow him into baggage claim). After about ten minutes of walking around, he saw...his luggage in a corner of the room. He picked it up and walked out, and no one said one word to him. Still no clue how it got to Israel, or how it was ever going to be returned. Virgin still thinks it's lost. I guess its not so bad because clearly no one was looking for it or cared at all.
My brother in law did the same. There was room after room of suitcases. No one cares at all

If the delay is over 8 hours then you are entitled to $1,000 as per the israel aviation services law. https://media.united.com/images/Media%20Database/SDL/travel/destination/international/CSM859-IL-Notice-of-Rights-English-2016-09-REV-ADA.pdf

You file with the airline and reference the Israli law.

UA135 ZRH-EWR was cancelled today due to mechanical issues. Rebooked to tomorrow.
(This was the return leg of a EWR-ZRH-EWR RT ticket.)
Does EU261 apply?
If so, is the 600 Euro in addition to hotel, taxi & food expenses?
What is the best way to get UA to pay?

Seems like it's cancelled for tomorrow, too.

They won't put you on a Swiss flight?

They have to give you hotel, etc .

You do get EU261 departing from the EU, no matter what airline.

 Thanks

UA3017 is the replacement for tomorrow.

Swiss was full. They wouldn't rebook on BA/AA ZRH-LHR-JFK.
