There’s nothing like having to leave the airport without your checked luggage. Depending on what you packed, everything from clothes to toiletries to electronics may need to be replaced. It turns out when the airline inconveniences you, there are regulations in place to make sure you’re fairly compensated.
In a TikTok video, the lawyer Erika Kullberg explained Delta’s rules when flying. When your luggage doesn’t arrive at the same time you do, don’t let the employees tell you that you’re just out of luck. Delta is required to offer you compensation to replace the necessities you’ll need to purchase upon arrival. And this is not a flat rate — the airline is required to reimburse you for any purchases you have to make up to $3,800.
