And how is that? United along with other carrier give vouchers. You are either being sarcastic or lying. Does southwest give vouchers for weather incurred delays?

As far as I know, passengers don’t have to clear customs and immigration in TOL.

If the Canadian customs officers refuses to all the passengers off the plane then how is united able to give them hotel rooms? Did you read the entire story about the YYR incident or just the clickbait headlines? Canada refusd to allow the passengers off over disputes with china. Flight was USA to China flight with many Chinese passengers on board.

Getting rooms in TOL is a big difference than trying to work with foreign customs officials to allow processing of customers that may need visas to enter your country.

Only time I’ve had a large delay with United my family of 4 was given vouchers for 2 rooms at the Double Tree Hilton and 150 dollars worth of food vouchers.

Somewhat fortunate timing because AA was likely to cancel or heavily delay their ORD flights today anyway.

Source? It is amazing what is repaired. A hull loss is $9 million+ insurance loss.

Never discount speed tape's effectiveness! ;)

PS,
Another source no damage to plane:

It is not a hull loss. The gear never even left pavement, the right main gear slid into a snow bank that was not cleared off the taxiway. A tug was used to move the aircraft out of the snowbank, and the aircraft was returned to the gate. The aircraft is ferrying out empty later today as flight 9301.

I doubt they would have had to give many hotel vouchers. Its not like any were connecting passengers so they all originated at TOL. I would bet most live within an hour of Toledo and could easily go home. Offering vouchers to those who needed them look good for PR, but probably didn't cost them much.
