Claiming compensation for Delta Airlines delays

If your Delta flight was delayed for a long time you can lose valuable holiday time or miss important meetings. Regulation 261/2004 was established in 2005 to protect airline passengers from the effects of long flight delays. The regulation establishes your right to compensation for delays exceeding three hours. Your flight is covered by the regulation if:

Delta Airlines is not a European airline. Therefor you are only entitled to compensation if your flight departs the EU with Delta Airlines. As Delta Airlines only operates long-distance flights to the USA from the UK, you are entitled to €600 for flight delays of four hours or more. If your arrival delay is between three or four hours you are entitled to €300 as ruled in the Sturgeon convention.

If your flight was delayed due to an extraordinary circumstance, you are not entitled to compensation. Examples of such situations are strikes of ATC, terrorist attacks, bad weather and medical emergency landings.

Example: Your flight with Delta Airlines from London Heathrow is delayed because of morning fog. You arrive with a delay of almost five hours. You are not entitled to a compensation of €600 per person.
