Other than the courtesy of a ‘thank you’ I don’t see any further need for any reward / compensation from the airline if it involves a passenger, if its crew then perhaps a greater gesture would be in order. But to take the case of passengers, if you would like a reward then perhaps you would should take it up with the passengers or their travel insurance company?

As a point of interest, in the event of a diversion on medical grounds does anyone know if an airline would bill a passenger or their insurance company for the costs involved to the airline? It probably wouldn’t make great publicity but why should an airline be liable for the cost of a passenger’s ill heath.
