Canceled Flight Compensation

Jump to last reply

A few weeks ago I was travelling back from Norway with KLM and had a flight cancellation. I am in the process of trying to get compensated, but am a little confused as to how much I can ask for. I have read about the EU rules regarding flight compensation, and I think I should qualify for the 600 euro based on those rules

1,500 km or less - EUR 250
1,500 - 3,500 km - EUR 400
over 3,500 km - EUR 600

Here is my issue. We were flying from Oslo to Amsterdam (on a KLM flight). This is the one that was canceled. This cancellation cause us to miss our connecting flights from Amsterdam to Portland and Portland to Reno (on flights with KLM flight numbers but operated by Delta). KLM is claiming we should only be reimbursed 250 euro for the single flight, saying they are not responsible for the rest because it was a different airline (even though it has a KLM flight number).

Is this correct? Or should I push to get the full 600?

Any advice would be appreciated. The cancellation caused us to arrive home a full 24 hours later than we should have, miss an entire day or work, and the whole thing has been a huge headache.
