Recently flew American Airlines and my onward flight was delayed resulting in me not being able to make it to my connecting flight. Since I knew this in advance, they had to rebook me on a flight the next day - I lost out on an entire day of travel. The next day, my flight was delayed prior to take off by 2.5 hours. How do I seek compensation for lost time?

Second credit card: currently I am 23 and have the chase freedom unlimited. Most of my expenses are related to food, dining, bars and some travel...(American Airlines is choice of airline, and Uber for ground). Can someone recommend a secondary card I can use for food and some travel with zero or a small annual fee?? Thanks in advance!
