Are you flying with Delta Air Lines from the United Kingdom or Europe? Delta Air Lines is a non-EU airline, so British and EU laws do not always protect your flight compensation rights.
To be eligible for Delta Air Lines flight compensation, you must be travelling with Delta from the United Kingdom/Europe.
More broadly, if you were flying from the United Kingdom or the European Union, it makes no difference which airline you fly with. Flight compensation regulations in the EU and the UK apply to all flights departing from EU and UK, including those operated by non-EU airlines.
Unfortunately, your passengers' rights are not protected under British and European flight compensation regulations when flying to the UK/EU on a non-EU airline. See the table below for more information on when you may be entitled to flight compensation.
If your Delta Air Lines flight from the UK/EU was delayed by more than 3 hours, you are entitled to flight compensation under British and European flight compensation regulations. The airline’s actions must have caused the delay.
Use our no-obligation Claim Calculator to see if you are eligible for compensation — you'll know if you're eligible for Delta Air Lines delayed flight compensation in less than a minute.
If you are eligible, we can handle the entire claim process for you on a "no win, no fee" basis. We will even defend your rights in court!
Delta Air Lines flight delayed by 3 hours or more?
Claim compensation of up to £520!
Depending on your Delta Air Lines flight cancellation circumstances, you may be entitled to compensation of up to £520, a ticket refund, or both.
You can claim cancelled Delta flight compensation if your cancelled flight was departing from the UK or the EU.
Additionally, to be eligible for cancelled flight compensation, your Delta flight must have been cancelled fewer than 14 days prior to the original departure date.
In some situations, the airline might rightfully deny you compensation, even if you meet the two criteria mentioned above. For more information about such situations, see the "Extraordinary Circumstances" section of this article.
If your Delta Air Lines flight from the UK/EU got cancelled, you could get a refund if:
The airline did not offer you an alternative flight.
The airline did offer you an alternative flight, but you decided not to take it.
You might get £520 in flight compensation for your delayed or cancelled Delta Air Lines flight.
Claim compensation online in just a few minutes!
If your Delta flight from the UK/EU was delayed or cancelled, you might be entitled to compensation from Delta Air Lines. The amount of compensation depends on the distance of your flight:
For flights shorter than 1,500 km, the compensation is £220.
For flights between 1,500 and 3,500 km, the compensation is £350.
For flights of over 1,500 kilometres within the EU, the compensation is also £350.
For flights of over 3,500 kilometres outside of the EU, the compensation is £520 —but if your flight was delayed by fewer than 4 hours, the total amount might be reduced by 50%.
Delta Air Lines can refuse compensation when the delay or cancellation was caused by a third party or force majeure. These situations are referred to as extraordinary circumstances.
Some of the most common extraordinary circumstances are:
Bad weather conditions, such as thick fog, heavy rain, or thunderstorms.
A strike, most often specifically within the aviation industry (for example, a strike of air traffic control workers at a specific airport).
However, a strike of the airline's crew is not considered an extraordinary circumstance!
Political circumstances, such as a terrorist attack or general security risk due to political unrest.
Natural disasters, including volcanic eruptions and hurricanes.
A collision between the aircraft and birds or other foreign objects.
An ill or unruly passenger.
Flight delays caused by the airport staff, such as extraordinarily long queues to security checks.
Be aware though: airlines will sometimes claim that an extraordinary circumstance occurred, even if this was not the case. They do this to avoid having to pay out compensation.
You have 6 years to claim compensation and refund if you flew from the United Kingdom. The exception is Scotland, where you have 5 years to claim.
