Flight was supposed to land in Ohio, diverted to Louisville - who pays?

Jump to last reply

I know airlines have no responsibility for weather delays and cancellations - but not sure about this one. Flight BOS-DCA-Columbus, Ohio. Began descent into Columbus but then turned left to Louisville - according to pilot diverted due to weather. Of note, when checking FlightStats and FlightAware websites, multiple planes landed and took off within 30 minutes of this flight.

So flight arrived in Louisville at midnight. Passengers were given a card with phone number to call "in the morning". Husband got hotel for a few hours sleep, one-way car rental on his own, since there were no flights from Louisville to Columbus on any airline that would get him to his noon meeting on time.

I expect he gets no compensation for this, but wondering what is the regulation for what happens to the other passengers in case something like this happens again.
