DL 17 Flight Delayed: Compensation

If your flight DL 17 London to Detroit was delayed, you may be entitled to compensation for a flight delay, depending on the circumstances. Regulation EC 261/2004 is a European Union law that gives passengers the right to compensation for flight delay inconvenience and lost time.

The law does not provide compensation for minor delays less than 3 hours. So to be entitled to make a valid compensation claim, your flight DL 17 must arrive in Detroit at least 3 hours late. The distance between London and Detroit is the main determining factor for compensation calculation for your flight DL 17.

Tip: Detroit is not your final destination, the amount of compensation must be calculated based on the distance between Detroit and your ultimate final destination if both flights are booked under the same reservation.

Our technology allows you to check your eligibility for flight DL 17 compensation and determine the proper amount of compensation in real time due from Delta Air Lines. Make sure you don't miss out on your compensation claim, use our free flight checker.

Airlines try really hard to force passengers to accept vouchers, because Delta Air Lines knows that the majority of passengers will never redeem vouchers, which will expire unused.
