    Qatar compensation
    I had similar fobbing off from Qatar for a delay MAN to DOH missing connection to Male and had to stay overnight in Doha. Eventually wrote to CAA who upheld my complaint and a week later Qatar u-turned and offered full compensation. Definitely write to the CAA.

    I have this same issue with Virgin. I bought a through ticket from Manchester to Miami in January but the 1 stop was in Atlanta ( Delta codeshare with Virgin) we were delayed 7 and a half hours in Atlanta and told that we weren’t entitled to compensation because our delay was in the USA-and by Delta so the EU law didn’t apply. I argued with them that I had a through ticket bought in the UK and I had no control over who Virgin shared with but I had bought a Ticket from them, not Delta . Both air.ines blamed each other and insisted I was not entitled to anything. However since Emirates lost this case I don’t know whether to resurrect this,claim and go via the CAA. Any advice anyone please ?

    The Emirates cases deal with delays on the first flight causing a missed connection where Emirates were only counting the time of the delay until Dubai.
    Your post is not clear whether you were delayed arriving in Atlanta, how late you were and more importantly what the reason for that delay was. I you arrived on time in Atlanta and it was the Delta flight that was delayed only then I doubt the Emirates case will help
