EU 261 applies to delays on flights leaving an airport in the EU &/or on an EU based airline.
Not sure how that affects a delay on a flight leaving a US airport on a US based airline.

Not sure if the fact that you've booked a through ticket via VS overrides this or not.
I'm no expert on this so happy for others with more knowledge to advise.

I'm pretty sure that as you arrived into the US on time on an EU airline that there is no compensation here (at least not EU211 or whatever)

The flight that was delayed was between to US cities in American tin, which the EU has no jurisdiction over.

The fact it was a connecting flight might have some bearing but I don't think it does

If all other criteria was met though, this wouldn't be enough of a reason to deny compensation - the airline should have arranged for cover to be in the airport as soon as they knew of the difficult situation. Staffing is almost always "under the control" of the airline as far as the EU regulations are concerned

What do you want compensation for? What financial loss did you incur?

Not all compensation in regard to flights is recoup financial losses.

I believe in this case there is no compensation under the EU261 flight compensation regulation as its an internal connection.
