Waaay better. The title is still too tortured IMO, but the overall article sounds goon now I think.

Also, this should probably be reworded now that you've expounded on both EU and Israeli laws:

It seemed like the family is owed 9,000 Israeli Shekels under Israeli law, why are they receiving a run-around?

Amazing! Much better now...

It stresses the important aspects properly, and clearly portrays the severity.

The three customers are also entitled to a compensation of 600€ per person. According to our records, the compensation wasn’t denied, but we have already issued an electronic-voucher to pay it. My colleagues in the Customer Service department are going to contact the customers to explain them how to proceed to receive the compensation.

Not sure if this was mentioned here or I don't understand their terms, but the comp needs to be by law cash/check not a voucher for future use

Not on home page yet, please don't share the link.
I have been following this thread from the beginning, so i followed the progression of the story, but i think the article elaborates too much before getting to the point. But the point was written very strongly!

but Iberia’s response did not address how it could be possible that they minors could have been the last to check-in for the Madrid-Tel Aviv
Should be "the".
I think the new post is much better. Maybe add the fact that there's no way their bags could have been checked through to a destination that they weren't checked in for yet.

Title in short: "Iberia abandons 3 minors in connection in Spain"

I'm not sure that's true.

On second thought, you may be right.

I would put the one sentence version in the first sentence.

DD haa confirmed that Iberia bumped three minor children travelling alone on the second leg of their journey and left them stranded in a foreign country with only a hotel voucher

#2.

#1 doesn't flow properly, and #3 is less accurate.

Should be: "It seems" or "it seemed like the family was owed"

Nightmare On Iberia: The Kids In Spain Are Forced Off The Plane
^My vote.

IMHO, I'd open with the gist of the story, before the United bit. Something like:

"On the Dans Deals forums, a mother shared a harrowing story of Iberia bumping her three children off their connecting flight from Madrid to Tel Aviv, leaving them alone and unattended to in a foreign country."
