What is Delta's responsibility for missed connection??

Jump to last reply

I have reservations booked with Delta from Prague to JFK and then on to Ft. Lauderdale. Originally, there was a 3 1/2 hour layover at JFK....a comfortable time usually for retrieving luggage, customs, passport control, security, and changing terminals for the second flight.

Now, Delta changed the schedule....with a layover of only 1 hour and 50 minutes at JFK. So I am wondering...WHAT IS DELTA'S RESPONSIBLITY TO ME IF I MISS THIS SECOND DELTA FLIGHT BECAUSE OF ALL THESE ISSUES (customs, passport, security, luggage, terminal change, etc.) EVEN IF THE FIRST FLIGHT IS ON TIME????

There is only one later Delta flight to Ft. Lauderdale that day. Delta will let me re-book my flight without charge. But that later flight would mean a 5-hour layover at JFK. ...not something to look forward to.

If it were just a matter of changing terminals, I might not mind this tighter connection. But adding in uncertain luggage retrieval, passport control, customs, and security is what makes me very nervous about this new schedule.

I DO have travel insurance.

1. WHAT ARE THE CHANCES OF MAKING THIS CONNECTION AT JFK?

2. Is 1 hour and 50 minutes considered a "legal" connection?

3. WHAT IS DELTA REQUIRED to do for me if I am unable to get on the second flight.

4. Is Delta required to find me another flight that night EVEN IF IT'S ON ANOTHER AIRLINE?

5. If I can't get booked on another flight that night, WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYING FOR A HOTEL ROOM? MEALS? for that night? Is it Delta? Airport? Insurance? Me?

Thanks for any help and information.
