So you suffered a very minor inconvenience for 50 minutes. 50 whole huge minutes. Did you miss a connection? Then I would say yes, you deserve some sort of compensation if VA didn't get you rebooked.

Perhaps the aircraft at the gate had a mechanical, maybe a tire change and couldn't be moved right away. Passengers don't have a "right" to know the issue.

Have you ever been stuck in a traffic jam for an hour? Did you demand compensation for whomever caused the traffic jam? After all, yo paid a fee for your registration and driver's license, and your taxes paid for the road. But someone kept you from enjoying that right you paid for.

You have to take those little curve balls life throws at you. They happen regardless of how well anything gets planned.
