Successful Challenge of Compensation


Level 2 Member
Was given a $250 voucher for being delayed 24 hours due to crew availability canceling my first flight and making me miss ORD-NRT. As I live in NRT and rarely fly on revenue fares, I don't think I'll be able to use it. Anyone successfully challenged compensation, maybe I can get it switched to miles?

Sounds like something for "The Exchange" - perhaps someone else here would be willing to buy it from you at a discount?

Digging up an old thread here, but it is definitely possible to get it changed to miles. You have to call, be polite, and be prepared to escalate, but I have had this happen for me a few times.
