Depends on the country and situation. In some areas, stranded passengers are taken to a nearby hotel but are restricted to that hotel. I encountered this with a delayed flight in Asia. Fortunately my nationality allowed me visa free entry so I entered through the immigration line, the others were escorted direct to the hotel bus by immigration and ...

If the airline can make any claim of weather, traffic, or any sort of delay out of their control, then you have no right to recompense. Sometimes they will offer hotel vouchers for overnight delays, but in my experience this is almost exclusively when it is due to mechanical problems with their equipment. Even if the delays are due to problems on their ...

For most weather related cancellations or delays (technical term is WX), as Beofett noted, the airline typically owes you nothing more than eventually getting you there (sometimes even by bus, although difficult to do in over-water flights :D), or refunding you your money. For mechanical delays or cancellations (MX), the airline has a much higher obligation ...

It does depend what ticket you have, and who you're with. If you are delayed on another RailTeam service, the ‘Hop on the next available train’ (HOTNAT) feature means that you may not even need to rebook (depends on the station), but if you do it'll be easy. (Keep the ticket from the delayed service though!) If you bought a domestic ticket that included ...

Generally speaking you have at least 10 day grace period after the I-94 validity ends to exit see section 214.2(h)(13)(i)(A) for the exact text: A beneficiary shall be admitted to the United States for the validity period of the petition, plus a period of up to 10 days before the validity period begins and 10 days after the validity period ends. The ...

Lost earnings - nope. Some travel insurance might cover that, but almost all won't, and the airline won't normally be liable for that sort of thing. The airline is pretty much always liable in such cases for sorting you out with accommodation and food, which it sounds like they have. (They probably don't have to cover your taxi if you decline the hotel, but ...

I found Senatåg which, as the name implies, lists late trains in Sweden. The user interface should be fairly self-descriptive. You can specify destinations, time period (what you are actually looking for) and minimum late time. Not sure if you can export the data to perform statistical analysis (if that's what your thing), but there seems to be an API in ...

I asked National Rail Enquiries about this, the part of ATOC (Association of Train Operating Companies) who provide timetable queries, and call themselves "definitive source of information for all passenger rail services on the National Rail network in England, Wales and Scotland". Their website also hots the National Rail Conditions of Carriage which Andrew ...

I cannot find a definitive answer, but the National Rail Conditions of Carriage are supposed to cover this. They say: Where delays, cancellations or poor service arise for reasons within the control of a Train Company or Rail Service Company, you are entitled to compensation in accordance with the arrangements set out in that Train Company’s ...

I'm curious myself and did a Google search. I could only find some new news from PBS. They covered the new Passenger Bill of Rights (effective August 2011): Excerpt: Notification of Flight Changes: Airlines are now required to inform passengers of delays and bumps either at the gate, via cell phone, or online for domestic flights. This gives passengers ...

I have never heard of CountryLink offering compensation for delayed trains/buses, and I have certainly never received any compensation for such delays (including one delay of around 6 hours, although that was probably 15 years ago!) The CountryLink XPT fleet is aging, with some trains being over 30 years old despite only having an expected operating life of ...

In general, the only way that you will be guaranteed to have the airline re-accommodate you on a later flight in the event of a delay is to book the flights on the same ticket - which basically means that you need to buy all of the flights together, from the same source. There is no means to "combine" them after booking, even if they are booked on the same ...

United Airlines do not fly LAX-AMS directly, so I'm presuming that you were due to fly via somewhere like Chicago, Cleveland or Washington DC which were experencing some of the worst and coldest weather conditions those areas have ever experienced due to a "Polar Vortex". Presuming that's the case, the claim of "weather" as the cause of the ...

As I understand it, your domestic leg is only covered if: It's part of a through international ticket It's a special ticket issued with CIV protections For the former, DB will happily sell you a through ticket from (for example) Brussels to Berlin. This involves a change of trains at Koln, but as it's a through ticket you're covered by CIV protections ...

If you are flying an EU-based carrier, the EU laws apply (even in the US). Regarding domestic flights, I am not sure. I am not a lawyer, but I guess that since many US airlines code-share with EU partners that buying your ticket from an EU company might give you more compensation rights, even in the US. Since you are not stating the direction of your ...

This will at least give you the on-time percentage: on-time percentage. However, I don't know of anything that will give you exact numbers, but in my experience it usually ends up being 90-120 minutes if it's delayed, but it can vary widely.

Promoting Relaxed's comment to an answer... It's also on infolignes.com/! If you do as I did, and select your region from the area I've labelled as #2, it will tell you about the general pattern for trains in your region. This is what tells you roughly how many trains will run on each line on a given day in the strike Alternately, if you look at the ...

I am aware of a UK website called Train Refunds (although have never used it). TrainRefunds is a completely free service for commuters who are tired of poor performance and late running trains. There aim is to bring commuters together to make sure that you get the refunds that you are entitled to. Their service lets users enter details of delays that can ...

I had a delay to SFO caused by fog and I found Flight Stats helpful to know the cause and also why and what way the situation in SFO. I was scared because it was the first of 3 flight. I hope this help. Sebastien

As Gagravar already explained, a lot is covered in eu regulations. Getting what you are entitled to, can still be a daunting task. I have heard good stories about Euclaim. They offer free advice to what you are entitled to.

As this is not so long ago, you can look it up on flightaware: AF0422 For your flight that would mean that is was scheduled at 10:40 but left at 11:07. Are you sure it was the 4th and not the 5th? Because it arrived late by 6 hours on the 5th (you can see that from the table)

http://flightaware.com/ They only have times a few weeks back unless you pay but March 4th is definitely still available for free

In my experience, airlines generally will are rebook you in case of connection delays if they are codeshare partners (for example, BA and AA resell each others' flights across the Atlantic), or are in the same alliance. As always, frequent flyer status is likely to expedite this too. I cannot say how much of this is "guaranteed" or legally required. I ...

There is no other source then the ones mentioned above. I guess that Senatåg.se is the best fit for you right now. PS. We keep track of all changes in real-time and store it for eventual later use. I don't have any endpoints in place for returning the data you request at this point. Send me a message/tweet/email for more info. DS.
