Flew business from Boston to Europe with Delta. We had 3.5hrs delay (so under the 4hrs delay for the EU law). I missed important meetings and the staff was quite rude. What would you ask?

What status do you have? What was the reason for the delay? And rude how?

FYI - You wouldn't have been eligible for compensation under EU law anyways since you're flying a non-EU carrier to Europe and not the other way around

It was originally a round trip ticket starting from Europe (so this was the « return » leg). Wouldn’t the EU law apply then?

I ended up getting 20,000 miles. I’m gold medallion. The delay was due to a mechanical issue with the plane, so we boarded with ~40mins delay and then waited in the plane as each time they thought it would take only ~30mins to fix the problem.

I am newly pregnant, vaccinated and boosted, and trying to figure out if I need to stop going into the office and increase the medium level of COVID precautions I had been taking. I had previously been going in 2-3 days a week and working remote the rest of the time. Also my husband travels a fair amount for work and idk if he should be trying to limit travel/office time as well. Will ask my Dr too but curious what level of advanced precautions others in this situation have taken. Thanks!

Gentle reminder: COVID transmits largely through airborne water droplets - nearly all transmission is through large, respiratory droplets. Masks aren't to protect those wearing them, but those around the wearer. A barrier prevents that cloud of droplets from moving far from the wearer. It isn't a perfect solution, but it does dramatically reduce how far those droplets travel. This is how masks are effective. Anyone saying they aren't effective is only considering effectiveness for the wearer.
