Delta Air Line COVID Refunds Settlement
Delta Air Lines has reached a settlement over claims that it breached its contracts of carriage with ticketholders by refusing requests for refunds and instead providing credits for future travel on the airline for flights Delta cancelled in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The airline denies all allegations and has agreed to settle this lawsuit to avoid further litigation. The Court has not decided who is right.
The Court will hold a hearing on October 5, 2023, at 10:00 a.m. (which is subject to change) to decide whether to finally approve the settlement. Check out the full details of this Delta COVID settlement below to find out who who is eligible, and how to submit a claim.
