Compensation after engine fire, 2 day delay

Jump to last reply

Hi, I am looking for some guidance in what is reasonable compensation for a recent flight issue. This is on behalf of my brother (I would have handled it at the time-they have just gotten back from the trip and are ready to deal).

On an Atlanta to Cancun flight an engine caught fire, they had to backtrack to Mexico City where they had a scary landing, met by fire trucks etc.

They were given a hotel voucher for one night but there were no flights the next day. They ended up paying for their own room the 2nd night and then flew on. So they lost 2 days of their vacation, had to pay for a hotel in Mexico City, and paid for 2 days of an airbnb they didn't use.

Any advice on how to approach this 'not in the moment' and what to ask for would be greatly appreciated.
