United Airlines is not legally obligated to compensate passengers for delayed flights. For lengthy delays exceeding 4 hours on US flights, United may provide services like meals, hotel accommodation, and rebooking. Compensation depends on the cause and length of delay.

Here are the steps on how to get compensation for a delayed United Airlines flight:

  1. Document the delay: As soon as your flight is delayed, start documenting the situation.
  2. Contact United Airlines customer service: Once you have documented the delay, contact United Airlines customer service to report the delay and inquire about compensation.
  3. Submit a formal claim: Make a formal claim with United Airlines if you are unable to receive compensation over the phone. Online or by mail, you can complete this.

If you are unsure whether you are entitled to United compensation for a delayed flight, you can visit the Airlines Pet Policy or contact at 800-864-8331 or +1-844-902-4930 (OTA Skip-Waiting). They will be able to review your situation and determine if you are eligible for any compensation.
