Thanks

there are federal regulations. You can probably find them online. Be prepared for the airline rep to lie, or tell half truths. Be very polite and see what they volunteer, already knowing what they are required to do. They could offer more than required, so let them offer first.

Their policy has no bearing on federal law.

correction, delays/cancellations, no

bumping, yes [www.transportation.gov]

Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008) Private citizens have the right under the Second Amendment to possess an ordinary type of weapon and use it for lawful, historically established situations such as self-defense in a home, even when there is no relationship to a local militia.

"The conclusion is thus inescapable that the history, concept, and wording of the second amendment to the Constitution of the United States, as well as its interpretation by every major commentator and court in the first half-century after its ratification, indicates that what is protected is an individual right of a private citizen to own and carry firearms in a peaceful manner." Right to Keep and Bear Arms: Report of the Subcommittee on the Constitution of the Committee on the Judiciary, United States Senate, Ninety-seventh Congress, Second Session. U.S. Government Printing Office. 1982. Digitized September 30, 2008.

From the NYSRPA v Bruen "Today, we decline to adopt that two-part approach. . . . Despite the popularity of this two-step approach, it is one step too many. Step one of the predominant framework is broadly consistent with Heller, which demands a test rooted in the Second Amendment's text, as informed by history."

Short answer - there are no federal regulations that require any compensation for delayed flights. Individual airlines may have internal policies that do give compensation.

Here is the DOT page in regards to it -- [www.transportation.gov]

The German word for contraceptive is “Schwangerschaftsverhütungsmittel”. By the time you finished saying that, it’s too late

What's the cause of the delay, if it's weather, then the delay is probably not being caused by the airline.

But if for example it's caused by failures in their computer systems, that's another story.
