I had booked my Flight from Denver to Mumbai (Return Also) through Etihad Airways for 23rd March 2013.
However, Flight from Denver to Chicago got delayed due to some technical Reason by 5 Hours and I missed my connecting flight from Chicago to Abu Dhabi.
No one from Etihad Airway Personnel was ready to listen to us and they were talking as It was our Mistake that we missed it.
We were 7-8 People who missed that flight due to delay and stayed in Chicago for 24 Hours to get to Next Flight on 24th March 2013.
I am not sure how you operate and help customers but till date no one contacted me for any compensation and We had been told that they cannot provide Accommodation so had to stay on our own Expenses.
During these scenarios, responsible Airways always provide the Compensation & Accommodation.
