LGA - IND: $400 and got rebooked to F the next day w/ hotel, taxi, and meals. I only took it because my wife was already staying at NYC for a conference arriving at the time I was going back home. Therefore, I didn't need the hotel comp because my wife was staying at the Hudson hotel in Manhattan. They did compensate me for limo services round trip from the airport to the hotel.

I definitely agree with golfingboy on negotiating at least $400, especially on red-eye flights from LAX for example. The whole purpose (as brutal as it seems) of the red-eye flight is to get back to the east coast and not lose time (although lose a lot of sleep and gain grumpiness after the flight) and they should compensate for that time that you will lose if you take the next flight on the next day.
