Boarded my plane, then had to get off due to "technical issues". Now my flight is delayed over 6 hours. What is reasonable to request from United for this? Never had to do this

It’s United. Should be happy you didn’t die.

But if it’s actually mechanical, and if you have status, you should be able to get points or travel vouchers. They should also switch you to a different flight or provide food vouchers/hotel if it’s an overnight delay

funny

Wow, sorry to hear that. I’d say 15-30K miles, based on how high your status is. Maintaining the plane is 100% the airline’s responsibility.

And if you have an official “we are delayed due to ...” on the United app, would take a screenshot and keep. UA won’t give miles if weather or ATC, so they may try to claim that ... document & get evidence now!
